A loan of $625 helped a member to puchase more items such as water, milk and salt to sell.

Moreen's Group's story

Moreen's group is comprised of five hardworking women. Moreen is 18 years old and lives in the town of Kyenjojo in the Mubende region of Uganda. For the past two years, Moreen has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells sugar, soap and salt.

To help expand her business, Moreen has requested a loan of 300,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more items such as water, milk and salt to sell, and will help Moreen to generate greater profits and take good care of herself. Moreen hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land.

Moreen 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: Moreen, Rose, Shilah, Rose, Topista
