Janet's Group's story

Janet's group is comprised of two hard-working women. Janet is 19 years old and lives in the town of Kisekende in the Mubende region of Uganda. For the past year, Janet has been working hard to manage her small clothing business. To help expand her business, Janet has requested a loan of 300,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes to sell, and will help Janet to generate greater profits and take care of her young siblings. Janet hopes that in the future she will be able to own a big boutique shop. Janet 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.
