A loan of $900 helped a member to buy more chicks and chicken feed.

Betty's Group's story

Betty's Group is composed of nine hard-working women. Betty is 20 years old and lives in the town of Mityana in Uganda. She is single and has one child. For the past two years, Betty has been working hard to manage her poultry farm. To help expand her business, Betty has applied for a loan of 200,000 Ugandan Shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more chicks and chicken feed, and it will help Betty to generate greater profits and improve her family’s welfare. Betty hopes that, in the future, she will be able to buy a plot of land and build a house. 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.
