Veneranda's story

Veneranda is 23 years old and lives in the town of Lyantode in the Mbarara region of Uganda. She is married and has two children who are all currently in school. Veneranda has been working hard to manage her agriculture business in which she does agriculture farming of cash crops.

To help expand her business, Veneranda has requested a loan of 1,200,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy seeds for crops like Irish potatoes, cassava, tomatoes, onions, and carrots and pesticide for spraying the crops. This will help Veneranda to generate greater profits and her production will increase and attract more revenue. She will manage to provide other family necessities. Veneranda hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land to increase the farming business.

Veneranda 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.
