A loan helped a member to buy more water and soda to sell.


Jesca's Group's story

Jesca's group is comprised of 3 hard working women. Jesca is 21 years old and lives in the town of Mityana in the Kiyinda region of Uganda. She is married and has one child. For the past 3 years, Jesca has been working hard to manage her beverages business, which sells soda, water, and juice.

To help expand her business, Jesca has requested a share of 2,400,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more water and soda and will help Jesca to generate greater profits and help her afford more basic needs at home, improve her the standard of living at home and support her child as well. Jesca hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land.

Jesca 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.

In this group: Jesca, Esther, Florence
