A loan of $500 helped a member to purchase more fresh food such as raw bananas to resell.


Eva's Group's story

Eva's group is made up of three hard working women. Eva is 16 years old and lives in the town of Kyenjojo in the Mubende region of Uganda. For the past year, Eva has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells fresh food.

To help expand her business, Eva has requested a loan of 200000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more fresh food such as raw bananas to resell, and will help Eva generate greater profits and pay school fees for her young siblings. Eva hopes that in the future she will be able to give her younger sibling a better education.

Eva 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: Eva, Grace, Ritah
