Sarah's story

Sarah is 19 years old and lives in the town of Kibuli in the Makindye region of Uganda. For the past 2 years, Sarah has been working hard to manage her food stall, which sells green bananas(plantains), cassava, tomatoes etc.

To help expand her business, Sarah has requested a loan of 1,200,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase for more green bananas, cassava, tomatoes to increase her sales, and will help her to generate greater profits and her production will increase and attract more revenue. She will manage to buy food for her family and clothes for her self. Sarah hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land and also own a big hotel in town.

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.
