A loan of $575 helped a member to purchase more fresh fruit to sell.

Phiona's Group's story

Phiona's group is comprised of three hard-working women. Phiona is 19 years old and lives in the town of Lugazi in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is single and has one child. For the past two years, Phiona has been working hard to manage her small business, through which she sells fresh fruit.

To help expand her business, Phiona has requested a loan of 600,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more fresh fruit to sell, and will help Phiona to generate greater profits and take care of her child and her family. Phiona hopes that in the future she will be able to increase her capital in her business.

Phiona 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: Phiona, Dinah, Sarah
