A loan of $350 helped a member to obtain raw food such as Irish potatoes and cooking oil.


Benina's Group's story

Benina's group is comprised of three hardworking women. Benina is 18 years old and lives in the town of Nansana in the Kampala west region of Uganda. She is single and has no children. For the past year, Benina has been working hard to manage her outside catering business, which sells chips and other foods.

To help expand her business, Benina has requested a loan of 300,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to obtain more raw food such as Irish potatoes and cooking oil to use in the business. This will help Benina to generate greater profits and pay her bills. Benina hopes that in the future she will be able to expand the business.

Benina 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: Benina, Prossy, Margret
