Sharon's story

Sharon is 16 years old and lives in the town of Kisekende in the Kisekende region of Uganda. For the past year, Sharon has been working hard to manage her food stall, which sells green bananas, sweet potatoes, and Irish potatoes.

To help expand her business, Sharon has requested a loan of 400,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more green bananas, sweet potatoes, Irish potatoes and will help Sharon to generate greater profits.

Higher revenue from expanded business will enable Sharon provide more basic needs at home and improve on the standards of living as well.

Sharon hopes that in the future she will be able to open up a bigger food stall.

Sharon 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.
