Christine's story

Christine is 21 years old and lives in the town of Kabuusu, which is in the Makindye region of Uganda. She is single and has two children who are currently in school. For the past six years, Christine has been working hard to manage her vending stall where she sells onions and tomatoes.

To help expand her business, Christine has requested a loan of 900,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more onions and tomatoes. This will help Christine generate greater profits, which she will use to pay school fees for her children, buy personal items for herself and her children, pay household bills, provide for the basic needs of her family, and improve their standard of living. In the future, Christine hopes to buy a plot of land for building a house.

Christine 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.
