Sylvia's story

Sylvia is 29 years old and lives in the town of Kalerwe in the Kawempe region of Uganda. She has one child. For the past 3 years, Sylvia has been working hard to manage her poultry farm.

To help expand her business, Sylvia has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase feed for the hens and vaccines so as to improve the products of chicken meat and eggs for sale, and will help Sylvia to generate greater profits. She will manage to buy food for her family and also manage to take care of her other family basic needs like buying clothes for her children.

Sylvia hopes that in the future she will be able to establish a very big poultry farm and build a house of her own.

Sylvia is a member of BRAC's microfinance program (MF). The program primarily serves small group members like Sylvia who do not have collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown and qualify for microloans.
