Aisha is a hard-working woman. Aisha is 22 years old and lives in the town of Pallisa in the region of Iganga in Uganda. She is single and has one child. For the past two years, Aisha has been working hard to manage her business, which is to sell shoes.

To help expand her business, Aisha has requested a loan of 350,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more shoes and will help Aisha generate greater profits, which she will use to pay school fees for her child. Aisha hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land.

Aisha 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.
