A loan of $175 helped a member to improve her fish selling business and to buy more types of fish to sell.

Betty's Group's story

Betty is 18 years old and lives in the town of Kumi in the Mbale region of Uganda. She is married and has two children. For the past seven months, Betty has been working hard to manage her fish selling busines.

To help expand her business, Betty has requested a loan of 200,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to improve the business and buy more types of fish to sell, and will help Betty to generate greater profits and provide for her family. Betty hopes that in the future she will be able to boost the business.

Betty 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.
