Judith's Group's story

Judith's group is comprised of four hard-working women. Judith is 22 years old and lives in the town of Kachwamba, in the Fortportal region of Uganda. She is single and has two children, one of them currently in school. For the past one year, Judith has been working hard to manage her small business, selling fast foods such as pancakes and vegetable sabusas. To help expand her business, Judith has requested a loan of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. She will use the loan to buy more vegetables and wheat flour, which will be used for making sabusas. The loan will help Judith to generate greater profits and improve her stardand of living. Judith hopes that in the future, she will be able to build her own house. Judith 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. "
