A loan of $350 helped to buy more poultry feeds and chicks for resale.

Juliet's story

She is 23 years old and lives in the town of Kyengera in the Kampala west region of Uganda. She is married and has 3 children, with 2 of them currently in school. For the past 3 years, Juliet has been working hard to manage her poultry farm, which sells chicks.

To help expand her business, Juliet has requested a loan of 900,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more poultry feeds and chicks for resale, and will help Juliet to generate greater profits and provide some basic needs for her family. Juliet hopes that in the future she will be able to own a primary school.

Juliet 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.
