A loan of $325 helped a member to buy more sacks of groundnuts to sell.

Sarah's Group's story

Sarah is 21 years old and lives in the town of Kumi in the Mbale region of Uganda. She is married and has three children with two of them currently in school. For the past seven years, Sarah has been working hard to manage her business selling groundnuts (peanuts).

To help expand her business, Sarah has requested a loan of 600,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to expand the business and buy more sacks of groundnuts to sell. This will help Sarah to generate greater profits and improve her standard of living. Sarah hopes that in the future, she will be able to look after her family.

Sarah 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.
