A loan of $650 helped a member to buy more clothes to sell.


Prossy's Group's story

Prossy's group is comprised of six hard-working women. Prossy is 20 years old and lives in the town of Kiyinda in Uganda. For the past two years, Prossy has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells clothes. To help expand her business, Prossy has requested a loan of 300,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes to sell, and will help Prossy to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her young siblings. Prossy hopes that in the future she will be able to own another business. Prossy 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: Prossy, Jane, Aisha, Sylvia, Phiona, Teopista
