A loan of $325 helped a member to buy more chicks and feed for them.

Tabisa's Group's story

Tabisa's group is comprised of two hard-working women. Tabisa is 22 years old and lives in the town of Kayunga in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has two children with one of them currently in school. For the past two years, Tabisa has been working hard to manage her poultry farm, which sells chicken birds.

To help expand her business, Tabisa has requested a loan of 350,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more chicks and feed for them, and will help Tabisa to generate greater profits and support her family with the basic needs. Tabisa hopes that in the future she will be able to increase further her capital.

Tabisa 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.
