A loan of $250 helped a member to purchase feed and chemicals, to use in her business of fish farming.

Aisha's Group's story

Aisha's group is comprised of two hard-working, young women. Aisha is 20 years old and lives in the town of Mityana, in Uganda. She is married and has one child. For the past three years, Aisha has been working hard to manage her fish pond, where she produces and sells fresh fish.

To help expand her business, Aisha has requested a loan of 300,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase feed and chemicals for the fish, and will help Aisha to generate greater profits and expand the business into a very big fish pond. Aisha hopes that, in the future, she will be able to buy land and build a house.

Aisha 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: Aisha, Susan
