A loan of $200 helped a member to buy more clothes to sell.


Aisha's Group's story

Aisha's group is comprised of two hard-working women. Aisha is 22 years old and lives in the town of Seeta in the Mukono region of Uganda. For the past year, Aisha has been working hard to manage her clothing boutique. To help expand her business, Aisha has requested a loan of 250,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes to sell, and will help Aisha to generate greater profits to take good care of herself. Aisha hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business into a wholesale shop. Aisha 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.
