Violet's Group's story

Violet's group is comprised of three hard-working women. Violet is 16 years old and lives in the town of Kyenjojo in the Mubende region of Uganda. For the past two years, Violet has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells sugar, soap, milk and bread. To help expand her business, Violet has requested a loan of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more essential goods like milk, bread, sugar and soap for resale, and will help Violet to generate greater profits and pay for her own school fees. Violet hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land. Violet 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.

In this group: Violet, Annet, Dalia
