A loan of $300 helped a member to increase stock and buy more items such as bread and milk to sell.


Rebecca's Group's story

Rebecca's group is comprised of four hardworking women. Rebecca is 17 years old and lives in the town of Pallisa in the Iganga region of Uganda. For the past four years, Rebecca has been working hard to manage her retail store, which sells sugar, flour, rice and other items.

To help expand her business, Rebecca has requested a loan of 150,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to increase stock and buy more items such as bread and milk to sell, and will help Rebecca to generate greater profits and meet customers' needs. Rebecca hopes that in the future, she will be able to start another retail shop.

Rebecca 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: Rebecca, Mastula, Sophia, Monica, Recheal
