Earlier this year, BRAC Uganda entered into an exciting new partnership with Whole Planet Foundation to provide microloans to adolescent girls between the ages of 16 and 21. The youth microfinance component is part of a targeted solution developed by BRAC to empower adolescents living in poverty. With the support from Whole Planet Foundation, BRAC Uganda is projecting to reach more than 8,000 adolescent girl borrowers in 2010 and 16,000 borrowers by 2012.

You can also participate in this movement when you walk in to any of the Whole Foods Market U.S. stores and pick up the 2011 Calendar on sale there. 100% of calendar proceeds are donated to Whole Planet Foundation supporting microlending initiatives like the BRAC Uganda youth microfinance program.
This year’s calendar features inspiring entrepreneurs from around the globe. On the cover of the calendar is BRAC Uganda youth microfinance borrower, Beatrice, a mentor of the BRAC Uganda adolescent club in her community. She received a month-long orientation training from BRAC in Kampala before being assigned to become a mentor in the club. Beatrice also recently started a tailoring shop next to her mother’s grocery store, with the help of a $100 youth microfinance loan she received from BRAC.
