A loan of $700 helped a member to buy more materials for making clothes to sell.

Rebecca's Group's story

Rebecca's group is comprised of five hard-working women. Rebecca is 20 years old and lives in the town of Kamwenge, in the Fortportal region of Uganda. She is single and has two children who are currently in school. For the past three years, Rebecca has been working hard to manage her tailoring business.

To help expand her business, Rebecca has requested a loan of 300,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more materials for making clothes for sale. It will help Rebecca to generate greater profits and to develop herself more, in terms of business ability and providing good basic needs. Rebecca hopes that in the future, she will be able to buy cows for her family.

Rebecca 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: Rebecca, Ammidar, Charity, Primerose, Irene
