Madina's Group's story

Madina is 21 years old and married with two children. She lives in the town of Bulenga in the Kampala west region of Uganda. For the past year, Madina has been working hard to manage her retail shop where she sells essential commodities such as dry beans, sugar, and maize flour. Her loan group is comprised of three hardworking women.

Madina is requesting a 6,000,000 UGX loan from BRAC Uganda to expand her business and buy more essential commodities such as maize flour, dry beans, and sugar to sell. Her loan will help her generate greater profits that she will use to expand her business. In the future, Madina hopes to own a wholesale shop.

Madina 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. The ELA program has improved Madina's future prospects.
