A loan of $300 helped a member to expand her assortment of used clothing to sell.


Goreti's Group's story

Goreti's group is comprised of 3 hard-working women. Goreti is 22 years old and lives in the town of Kasese in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. She is married and has one child who is currently in school. For the past 6 months, Goreti has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells second-hand clothes.

To help expand her business, Goreti has requested a loan of 300,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to expand her range of used clothing to sell and will help Goreti to generate greater profits and pay school fees. Goreti hopes that in the future she will be able to build a house.

Goreti 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.

In this group: Goreti, Immaculate, Asmah
