A loan of $300 helped to add more stock into the business.

Asina's story

Asina's group is comprised of hard-working women. Asina is 23 years old and lives in the town of Rukoki in the Fortpotal region of Uganda. For the past 3 years Asina has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells traditional clothes.

To help expand her business, Asina has requested a loan of 700,000 Ugandan Shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to add more stock into the business, which will help Asina to generate greater profits and pay school fees for herself. Asina hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a car and build a house of her own.

Asina 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 Asina's future prospects by helping her to learn about herself.
