A loan of $400 helped a member to acquire more materials to run the business, such as hair extensions.

Juliet's Group's story

Juliet's group is comprised of three hard-working women. Juliet is 17 years old and lives in the town of Seeta, in the Mukono region of Uganda. For the past year, Juliet has been working hard to manage her salon, which involves hair styling and cosmetics.

To help expand her business, Juliet has requested a loan of 300,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to acquire more materials to run the salon, such as hair extensions, and will help Juliet to generate greater profits and pay for her needs. Juliet hopes that in the future she will be able to sustain a family.

Juliet 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: Juliet, Joyce, Esther
