Faridah Nabukera's Group's story

Faridah's group is comprised of 3 hard-working women. Faridah is 21 years old and lives in the town of Seeta in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has one child. For the past 2 years, Faridah has been working hard to manage her boutique shop, which sells clothes.

To help expand her business, Faridah has requested a loan of 250,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes for resale, and will help Faridah to generate greater profits and expand her business and take care of her family. Faridah hopes that in the future she will be able to open up a big boutique shop.

Faridah 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. The ELA program has increased Faridah's future prospects by helping her to improving her business.

In this group: Faridah, Agne, Breda
