A loan helped to buy more chicken feeds and chicks.


Catherine's story

Catherine is 23 years old and lives in the town of Kyengera in the Kyengera region of Uganda. For the past 2 years, Catherine has been working hard to manage her Poultry, which sells eggs and off layers.

To help expand her business, Catherine has requested a loan of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more chicken feeds and chicks for rearing, and will help Catherine to generate greater profits and sales revenue.

From increased sales, Catherine will provide more basic needs at home, support her siblings and improve on her general standards of living. Catherine hopes that in the future she will be able to have the biggest and most functional poultry farm in the entire community.

Catherine is a member of BRAC's Empowerment and Livelihood for Adolescents (ELA) program. In addition to microfinance loans, the program provides both a safe place for young Ugandan women to take part in group activities, and a forum for life-skills training.


This loan is special because:

It offers training programs in life skills for young women.
