A loan of $225 helped a member to buy a typewriter, enabling her to add a new service to the ones she offers now.


Alice's Group's story

Alice's group is comprised of two hard-working women. Alice is 22 years old and lives in the town of Kaliro, in the Iganga region of Uganda. She is married and has two children. For the past two years, Alice has been working hard to manage her office services business, where she sells printing and photocopying services. To help expand her business, Alice has requested a loan of 400,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy a typewriter, and this purchase will help Alice to generate greater profits and expand the business. Alice hopes that in the future, she will be able to increase her working capital. Alice 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.
