A loan of $275 helped a member to buy a variety of vegetables.

Loyce's Group's story

Loyce is 24 years old and lives in the town of Bungohko in the Mbale region of Uganda. She is married and has five children, with three of them currently in school. For the past two years, Loyce has been working hard to manage her vegetable business, through which she sells vegetables like cabbage and tomatoes.

To help expand her business, Loyce has requested a loan of 150,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy a variety of vegetables, and will help Loyce to generate greater profits and boost her business to increase her income. Loyce hopes that in the future she will be able to put her children through school.

Loyce 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.
