A loan of $850 helped a member to buy more drinks such as passion fruit for making juice and soda to sell.


Barbra's Group's story

Barbra's group is comprised of three hardworking women. Barbra is 21 years old and lives in the town of Kinoni in the Masaka region of Uganda. For the past year, Barbra has been working hard to manage her small shop, which sells soft drinks. To help expand her business, Barbra has requested a loan of 800000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more drinks such as passion fruit for making juice and soda to sell, and will help Barbra to generate greater profits and take care of her family members by providing for all the basic needs. Barbra hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business and add some different soft drinks, such as all types of Splash. Barbra 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.
