Neoline's story

Neoline is 18 years old and lives in the town of Buwama in the region of Uganda. She is married and has two children, one of whom is currently in school. For the past three years, Neoline has been working hard to manage her snacks seller, which sells mandazi (fried bread) and popcorn.

To help expand her business, Neoline has requested a loan of 800,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more items for making snacks to sell at her convenience store, and will help Neoline to generate greater profits. This will help her be able to provide basic needs. Neoline hopes that in the future she will be able to to start up a restaurant.

Neoline 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.
