Aisha's Group's story

Aisha's Group is comprised of two hard working women. Aisha is 16 years old and lives in the town of Pallisa in the Iganga region of Uganda. For the past year, Aisha has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells beans, sugar, peas, maize flour and rice.

To help expand her business, Aisha has requested a share of 1,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase beans, cassava flour, maize flour, sugar, juice and soda. This will help Aisha to generate greater profits. Using the profits of the business, Aisha will be able to buy for herself personal items like clothes, pay house bills and provide basic needs for the family like food and medical care, thereby improving their standards of living.

Aisha hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a motorcycle.

Aisha 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.
