A loan of $300 helped a member to buy more clothes for resale.


Anita's Group's story

Anita's group is comprised of two hard-working women. Anita is 22 years old and lives in the town of Hima in the Fortportal region of Uganda. She is married and has two children. For the past three years, Anita has been working hard to manage her small business in clothing sales. To help expand her business, Anita is requesting a loan of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes for resale and will help Anita to generate greater profits and pay for her family's medical expenses. Anita hopes that in the future she will be able to build a house for herself. Anita 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.
