A loan of $725 helped a member to buy more fasionable clothes for resale.

Oliver's Group's story

Oliver's group is comprised of three hard-working women. Oliver is 25 years old and lives in the town of Rukoki, in the Fortportal region of Uganda. She is married and has two children; one of them is currently in school. For the past two years, Oliver has been working hard to manage her small clothing business, which sells clothes.

To help expand her business, Oliver has requested a loan of 800,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. She will use the loan to buy more fashionable clothes for resale. This loan use will help Oliver to generate greater profits and to pay for her medical expenses. Oliver hopes that in the future, she will be able to expand her business into a bigger shop that sells clothes.

Oliver 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: Oliver, Anna, Eddy
