A loan of $400 helped a member to purchase more stock of fresh food to sell such as sweet potatoes.


Gorret's Group's story

Gorret's group is comprised of four hard working women. Gorret herself is 16 years old and lives in the town of Fort Portal, Uganda. For the past year, she has been working hard to manage her fresh food stall. To help expand her business, Gorret has requested a loan of 300,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more stock of fresh food such as sweet potatoes, and will help her to generate greater profits, boost the business and increase her family's income. She hopes that in the future she will be able to be more productive. Gorret 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: Gorret, Lilian, Esther, Sarah
