Christine's Group's story

Christine's group is composed of three hardworking women. Christine is 18 years old and lives in the town of Kacwamba in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. For the past three years, Christine has been working hard to manage her retail shop, where she sells household goods.

To help expand her business, Christine has requested a loan of 600,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy goods like soap and bread to sell, and it will help Christine to generate greater profits, pay medical expenses and save and budget. Christine hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land.

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.
