A loan of $475 helped a member to improve the business by buying more items for inventory, such as sugar, flour, and rice.


Ketty's Group's story

Ketty's group is comprised of three hard-working, young women. Ketty is 16 years old and lives in the town of Bungohko, in the Mbale region of Uganda. For the past one year, Ketty has been working hard to manage her retail shop, where she sells sugar, flour, rice, and other items.

To help expand her business, Ketty has requested a loan of 400,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to improve the business, by buying more items for inventory, such as sugar, flour, and rice. These purchases will help Ketty to generate greater profits and meet her customers' needs. Ketty hopes that in the future, she will be able to open a bigger store.

Ketty 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: Ketty, Gloria, Rosette
