Annet's Group's story
Annet's group is comprised of four hard-working women. Annet is 21 years old and lives in the town of Hima in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. She is 21 and has two children with both of them currently in school. For the past two years, Annet has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells books, soap and other products. To help expand her business, Annet has requested a loan of 900,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to increase stock and buy more items such as books, soap and other products. It will help Annet to generate greater profits and boost the business. Annet hopes that in the future she will be able to be self-reliant. Annet 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.
