A loan of $600 helped a member to purchase rice, sugar and soap.


Rose's Group's story

Rose's group is comprised of hard-working women. Rose is 23 years old and lives in the town of Mukono in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has two children who are both currently in school. For the past year, Rose has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells rice, sugar, and other items like soap.

To help expand her business, Rose has requested a loan of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase rice, sugar and soap, and will help Rose to generate greater profits and help get more profits to pay for her children's education. Rose hopes that in the future she will be able to get a bigger business.

Rose 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: Rose, Cissy, Sherina
