Madiina's story

Madiina is 22 years old and lives in the town of Mubende, which is in the Kisekende region of Uganda. She is married and has four children, two of whom are currently in school. For the past three years, Madiina has been working hard to manage her fast food business where she sells pancakes, chapati, samosas, and tea.

To help expand her business, Madiina has requested a loan of 700,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more wheat flour, cooking oil, tea leaves, sugar, and spices. This will help Madiina generate greater profits, which she will use to pay school fees for her children, buy clothes and other necessities for herself and her children, pay household bills, provide for the basic needs of her family, and improve their standard of living. In the future, Madiina hopes to buy a plot of land and build a house so that she can eliminate the expense of paying rent.

Madiina 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.
