A loan of $525 helped a member to buy more clothes to sell.

Asiina's Group's story

Asiina's group is comprised of two hard working women. Asiina is 21 years old and lives in the town of Rukoki in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. She is married and has one child. For the past four years, Asiina has been working hard to manage her small business of selling clothes.

To help expand her business, Asiina has requested a loan of 900,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes to sell, and will help Asiina to generate greater profits and take care of her self. Asiina hopes that in the future she will be able to build herself a house.

Asiina is a member of BRAC's Empowerment and Livelihood for Adolescents (ELA) program. In addition to micro-finance 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: Asiina, Sumaya
