A loan of $400 helped a member to buy more chicks and feed for the farm.


Claire's Group's story

Claire's group consists of two hardworking women. Claire is 22 years old and lives in the town of Kalerwe in the Kampala East region of Uganda. She is single and has one child. For the past two years, Claire has been working hard to manage her poultry farm, which sells poultry chicken.

To help expand her business, Claire has requested a loan of 500000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more chicks and feed for the farm, and will help Claire generate greater profits and pay school fees for her young sister. Claire hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land and build a commercial house for herself.

Claire 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: Claire, Maria
