Brendah's Group's story

Brendah's group is comprised of two hardworking women. Brendah is 20 years old and lives in the town of Mityana in the Kiyinda region of Uganda. For the past 4 years, Brendah has been working hard to manage her food business, which sells samosas, doughnuts, pancakes and chapatis.

To help expand her business, Brendah has requested a share of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more cooking oil, wheat flour, sugar, baking powder and buckets for storing food, and will help Brendah to generate greater profits. Brendah will use the profits of the business to provide for herself necessities like clothes and sanitary towels, pay school fees for her siblings, pay household bills and provide basic needs for her family like food, thereby improving on their standards of living.

Brendah hopes that in the future she will be able to buy goats and pigs for rearing in order to generate more revenue. She also wants to buy a plot of land and construct a house.

Brendah 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.
