A loan of $700 helped a member to start purchasing other inventory items to sell.


Charity's Group's story

Charity's group is comprised of three hardworking women. Charity is 18 years old and lives in the town of Hima in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. For the past three years, Charity has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells salt, sugar, washing powder and eggs.

To help expand her business, Charity has requested a loan of 600,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to start purchasing other items to sell, and will help Charity to generate greater profits and enlarge the business. Charity hopes that in the future she will be able to start another business.

Charity 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: Charity, Jenifah, Lillian
