Rose's Group's story

Rose's group is comprised of two hardworking women. Rose is 22 years old and lives in the town of Lukaya in Uganda. She is married and has two children, with one of them currently in school. For the past four years, Rose has been working hard to manage her market vendor business, which sells matooke, sweet potatoes, etc.

To help expand her business, Rose has requested a share of a 2,300,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more cassava and matooke to meet customer demand and will help Rose to generate greater profits, pay for her child's school fees, and provide basic needs. Rose hopes that in the future she will be able to have the biggest raw foods business in her community.

Rose 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.
