A loan of $1,325 helped a member to stock more food to sell in her restaurant.


Masitula's Group's story

Masitula's Group is comprised of six hard-working women. Masitula is 20 years old and lives in the town of Kisekende, in the Mubende region of Uganda. She is single and has one child. For the past three years, Masitula has been working hard to manage her restaurant, in which she sells cooked food.

To help expand her business, Masitula has requested a loan of UGX 600,000 (Ugandan shillings) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to stock more food to sell in her restaurant and will help Masitula to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her siblings. Masitula hopes that, in the future, she will be able to own a bigger restaurant.

Masitula is a member of BRAC Uganda'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: Masitula , Getrude, Gida, Nowerina, Minica, Joanita
