Jackline's Group's story

Jackline's group is comprised of five hardworking women. Jackline is 20 years old and lives in the town of Kasese in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. She is married and has two children who are both currently in school. For the past two years, Jackline has been working hard to manage her retail shop which sells sugar and soap. To help expand her business, Jackline has requested a loan of 300,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities for resale and will help Jackline to generate greater profits and pay some school fees for her children. Jackline hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a car for herself. Jackline 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 Jackline's future prospects by helping her learn how to save her money.
