Barbrah's story

Barbrah is 24 years old and lives in the town of Kyengera in the Kyengera region of Uganda. She is married and has two children, who are both currently in school.

For the past four years, Barbrah has been working hard to manage her produce business, which sells beans and peas.

To help expand her business, Barbrah has requested a loan of 1,100,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to stock more produce like beans and maize and will help Barbra to generate greater profits.

Higher profits will be realized from the expanded business. Barbrah will also be in a position to buy more basic needs at home, to improve her standards of living in the short run and to take care of her children and pay the respective school dues.

Barbrah hopes that in the future she will be able to have the biggest produce business in the entire community.

Barbrah 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.
