Eresi's Group's story

Eresi's group is comprised of two hard working women. Eresi is 25 years old and lives in the town of Kaliro in Uganda. She is married and has 3 children, two of which are currently in school. For the past 3 years, Eresi has been working hard to manage her retail shop, where she sells rice, sugar and busiquetes.
To help expand her business, Eresi has requested a loan of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more items such as rice to sell, and will help Eresi generate greater profits and provide her family with their basic needs. Eresi hopes that in the future she will be able to own a wholesale shop.
Eresi 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: Eresi, Fatuma
