Catherine's Group's story

Catherine's Group is comprised of hardworking women. Catherine is 20 years old and lives in the town of Zirobwe, in the Luwero region of Uganda. She is married and has three children who are all currently in school. For the past 6 years, Catherine has been working hard to manage her farm, growing tomatoes and sweet potatoes.

To help expand her business, Catherine has requested a loan of 400,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase a generator that will help her set up another video cinema and help Catherine to raise more profits to add to the business. Catherine hopes that in the future she will be able to build a house.

Catherine 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.
