Sarah's story

Sarah is 22 years old and lives in the town of Kabuusu in the Makindye region of Uganda. For the past two years, Sarah has been working hard to manage her poultry farming business.

To expand her business, Sarah has requested a loan of 500,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase feed for the hens to improve the production of eggs, which Sarah sells. This loan will help Sarah generate greater profits with which she will manage to buy food for her parents and take care of herself.

Sarah hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land and build a bigger house for her family.

Sarah 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.
