Justine's Group's story

Justine's group is comprised of two hard working women. Justine is 25 years old and lives in the town of Zirobwe in the Kasangati region of Uganda. She has 3 children who are all currently in school.

For the past 2 years, Justine has been working hard to manage her catering business where she sells chapatti and rice. To help expand her business, Justine has requested a share of 2,500,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy cooking oil and rice, and will help Justine to generate greater profits. With her increased profit, she will be able to provide for her children's needs, and improve their standard of living.

Justine hopes that in the future she will be able to buy land and build a house.

Justine 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.
