Leocadia's story

Leocadia is 21 years old and lives in the town of Nyendo in the Masaka region of Uganda. She is married and has two children. For the past 2 years, Leocadia has been working hard to manage her food produce store.

To help expand her business, Leocadia has requested a loan of 300,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more dry maize and beans to increase the business. It will help Leocadia to generate greater profits in order to take good care of herself and her parents. Leocadia hopes that in the future she will be able to create a big wholesale store.

Leocadia 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.
