Jackline's' Group's story

Jackline's group is comprised of 3 hard working women. Jackline is 19 years old and lives in the town of Rukoki in the Fortportal region of Uganda. She is single and has one child. For the past two years, Jackline has been working hard to manage her small vendor business, which sells fresh fruit.

To help expand her business, Jackline has requested a loan of 250,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more fresh fruit for resale and will help Jackline to generate greater profits and pay for her medical bills. Jackline hopes that in the future she will be able to build a house and also make sure that she works hard to see that she educates her child up to the university level.

Jackline 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: Jackline's , Penina, Moreen
