Rukoki, Uganda / Soft Drinks

A loan of $600 helped a member to purchase more soft drinks, such as lemonade and passion fruit juice, to sell in her business.


Elizabeth's Group's story

Elizabeth's group is comprised of five hardworking women. Elizabeth is 18 years old and lives in the town of Rukoki in the Fortportal region of Uganda. For the past three years, Elizabeth has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells soft drinks.

To help expand her business, Elizabeth has requested a loan of 400,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more soft drinks, such as lemonade and passion fruit juice, to sell, and this will help Elizabeth to generate greater profits and pay for her medical expenses. Elizabeth hopes that she will be able to build a house of her own in the future.

Elizabeth is a member of BRAC's Empowerment and Livelihood for Adolescents (ELA) program. In addition to microfinance loans, the program provides a safe place for young Ugandan women to take part in group activities, and a forum for life-skills training.

In this group: Elizabeth, Winfred, Harriet, Scolar, Beatrice
