A loan of $325 helped to purchase matooke.

Eva's story

Eva is 18 years old and lives in the Mukono region of Uganda. For the past 3 years, Eva has been working hard to manage her raw foods business, which sells matooke, sweet potatoes.

To help expand her business, Eva has requested a loan of 800,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase matooke and will help Eva to generate greater profits and to increase her income. Eva hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business.

Eva 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.
