A loan of $850 helped a member to buy more clothes to sell.

Jovia's Group's story

Jovia's group comprises four hardworking women. Jovia is 18 years old and lives in the town of Hima in the Fortportal region of Uganda. She is single and has one child. For the past three years, Jovia has been working hard to manage her clothes store where she sells secondhand clothes.

To help expand her business, Jovia has requested a loan of 700,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes to sell. This will help Jovia to generate greater profits and improve her standard of living. Jovia hopes that in the future she will be able to boost her business.

Rose is a member of BRAC's Empowerment and Livelihood for Adolescents (ELA) program. In addition to micro-finance 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: Jovia, Janet, Doreen, Monica
