Rosemar's story

Rosemar is 17 years old and lives in the town of Kisekende in the Kisekende region of Uganda. For the past two years, Rosemar has been working hard to manage her retail business, where she sells produce, coffee, maize, and beans.

To help expand her business, Rosemar has requested a loan of 800,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more maize and coffee, and will help Rosemar to generate greater profits.

Rosemar's business will expand; hence she will earn more profits. She will be able to support her family, thereby improving their standard of living.

Rosemar hopes that in the future she will be able to rear hens, goats, and cows.

Rosemar 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.
