Regina's Group's story

Regina's group is comprised of two hardworking women. Regina is 20 years old and lives in the town of Rukoki in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. For the past four years, Regina has been working hard to manage her small business which makes and sells cassava flour.

To help expand her business, Regina has requested a loan of 400,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more cassava and will help Regina to generate greater profits and improve her family's welfare. Regina hopes that in the future she will be able to start a big retail shop.

Regina 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. The ELA program has improved Regina's future prospects by helping her to learn more about herself and how to improve her relationship with her husband.

In this group: Regina, Roseline
