Florence's story

Florence is 20 years old and lives in the town of Nansana in the Kampala west region of Uganda. For the past year, Florence has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells drinks like soda, juice and water.

To help expand her business, Florence has requested a loan of 400,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more drinks like lucozade (sports drinks), soda and water, and will help Florence to generate greater profits and take care of her necessities. Florence hopes that in the future she will be able to build rental houses.

Florence is a member of BRAC's Empowerment and Livelihood for Adolescents (ELA) program. In addition to micro-finance 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.
