but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase feed for the hens and vaccines so as to improve the production of eggs.

Viola's Group's story

Violah's group is comprised of two hardworking women. Viola is 38 years old and lives in the town of Mityana in the Mityana region of Uganda. She is married and has five children with three of them currently in school.

For the past five years, Violah has been working hard to manage her poultry farming business.

To help expand her business, Violah has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase feeds for the hens and vaccines so as to improve the production of eggs to sell. This will help Violah to generate greater profits and she will manage to buy food for her family and also manage to take care of her family's other basic needs like buying clothes for her children.

Viola hopes that in the future she will be able to acquire land and build a house of her own.

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