A loan of $325 helped a member to buy more clothes to expand the business.


Immaculate's Group's story

Immaculate's group is comprised of two hard-working women. Immaculate is 22 years old and lives in the town of Mukono in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has two children. For the past three years, Immaculate has been working hard to manage her clothing business, in which she sells babies' and ladies' wear.

To help expand her business, Immaculate has requested a loan of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes to expand the business, and will help Immaculate to generate greater profits. She will use the profits to buy the things her children need. Immaculate hopes that in the future she will be able to increase the business further.

Immaculate 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.
