Carol's Group's story

Carol's group is comprised of 2 hard working women. Carol is 21 years old and lives in the town of Nateete in the Kampala West region of Uganda. For the past 2 years, Carol has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells sugar and soap. To help expand her business, Carol has requested a loan of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities for resale, and will help Carol to generate greater profits and pay her own school fees. Carol hopes that in the future she will be able to own a designing shop. Carol 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 Carol's future prospects by helping her to improve her business.
