Justine's story

Justine is 16 years old and lives in the town of Wobulenzi in the Luwero region of Uganda. For the past 2 years, Justine has been working hard to manage her livestock business, selling cattle and goats. To help expand her business, Justine has requested a loan of 400,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more cattle, goats, and seeds for her farm and will help Justine to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her young brothers and sisters. Justine hopes that in the future she will be able to become the best farmer in town. Justine 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. "
