A loan of $825 helped a member to buy more phone accessories to sell.


Clare's Group's story

Clare's group is comprised of four hard working women. Clare is twenty-one years old and lives in the town of Kyengera in the Kampala West region of Uganda. She is single and has three children who are all currently in school. For the past five years, Clare has been working hard to manage her small shop, which sells phone accessories. To help expand her business, Clare has requested a loan of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more phone accessories for resale, and will help Clare to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Clare hopes that in the future she will be able to became a big business woman. Clare 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 increased Clare's future prospects by helping her to improve her business.
