A loan of $950 helped a member to buy fish that will be sold.

Agella's Group's story

Agella's group is comprised of five hard-working women. Agella is 19 years old and lives in the town of Hima in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. She is single and has one child who is currently in school. For the past three years, Agella has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells dried fish.

To help expand her business, Agella has requested a loan of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy fish that will be sold, and will help Agella to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her child. Agella hopes that in the future she will be able to build a house of her own.

Agella 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: Agella, Hellen, Benda, Moreen, Linda
