A loan of $350 helped a member to buy materials for mending clothes.


Mwamini's Group's story

Mwamini's group is comprised of two hard-working women. Mwamini is 16 years old and lives in the town of Bombo in the Luwero region of Uganda. For the past three years, Mwamini has been working hard to manage her sewing business where she mends and sells clothes.

To help expand her business, Mwamini has requested a loan of 400,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy materials for mending clothes and will help Mwamini to generate greater profits and boost the business. Mwamini hopes that in the future she will be able to add more money to the business.

Mwamini 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: Mwamini, Juliet
