A loan of $475 helped a member to buy more fresh foods to sell in her restaurant.


Margret's Group's story

Margret's group is comprised of four hard working women. Margret is 20 years old and lives in the town of Kyenjojo. For the past two years, Margret has been working hard to manage her restaurant, which sells cooked food.

To help expand her business, Margret has requested a loan of 400,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more fresh foods to sell, and will help Margret to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her young siblings. Margret hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land and build a house.

Margret 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: Margret, Joyce, Getrude, Oliver
