A loan of $250 helped to buy more sorghum, millet, and drinks such as sodas and beer to sell.

Rose's story

Rose is 18 years old and lives in the town of Kaliro, in the Iganga region of Uganda. She is married and has one child. For the past year, Rose has been working hard to manage her small local brew buiness, which sells local brew.

To help expand her business, Rose has requested a loan of 600000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to stock more sorghum, millet, and some other different drinks such as sodas and beer to sell. It will help Rose to generate greater profits and improve her family's standard of living. Rose hopes that in the future she will be able to start up a cloth business.

Rose 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.
