A loan of $325 helped a member to expand her business by purchasing additional clothes.

Patience's Group's story

Patience's group is comprised of two hard-working women. Patience is 17 years old and lives in the town of Mukono in the Mukono region of Uganda. For the past year, Patience has been working hard to manage her clothing sales' business.

To help expand her business, Patience has requested a loan in the amount of 400,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan proceeds will be used to buy more clothes for resale purposes, which Patience expects will help her to generate an increase in profits and to care for her siblings. In the future, Patience hopes to be able to expand her business.

Patience 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: Patience, Zaina
