A loan of $425 helped a member to buy more fashionable clothes to sell.

Judith's Group's story

Judith is 18 years old and lives in the town of Hima in the Fortportal region of Uganda. For the past two years, she has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells clothes. Judith's group is comprised of three hardworking women.

To help expand her business, Judith has requested a loan of 400,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda to buy more fashionable clothes to sell; this will help her to generate greater profits, pay for her medical expenses, and buy new clothes for herself. Judith hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land and build a house.

Judith 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: Judith, Muhindo, Phiona
