Jidah's Group's story

Jidah's group is comprised of two hardworking women. Jidah is 19 years old and lives in the town of Nakifuma in the Kasangati region of Uganda. For the past two years, she has been working hard to manage her restaurant, which sells cooked food.

To help expand her business, Jidah has requested a share of 2,100,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase baking flour, fresh fish, silver fish, matooke, rice and meat, and will help Jidah to generate greater profits, and higher profits will be realized from expanded business. She will also be in a position to buy more basic needs at home, improve her standards of living in the short run, and also take care of her siblings as well. She hopes that in the near future she will be able to venture into retail business.

Jidah 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.
