A loan of $1,000 helped a member to stock more birds on the farm to sell.

Aisha's Group's story

Aisha's group is comprised of nine hardworking women. Aisha is 18 years old and lives in the town of Mityana in the Mubende region of Uganda. For the past year, she has been working hard to manage her poultry farm, which sells chickens and eggs.

To help expand her business, Aisha has requested a loan of 300,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda to stock more birds on the farm to sell. This will help her to generate greater profits, support her family's basic needs, and pay school fees for her young siblings. Aisha hopes that in the future she will be able to construct rental houses in town.

Aisha 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: Aisha, Getrud, Annet, Caroline, Joyce, Joyce, Deborah, Stella, Phiona
