Faridah's Group's story

Faridah's group is comprised of 2 hard working women. Faridah is 21 years old and lives in the town of Bungokho in the Mbale region of Uganda. She is single and has 3 children who are all currently in school. For the past 3 years, Faridah has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells milk, bread, sugar and soap.

To help expand her business, Faridah has requested a loan of 750000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities like milk, bread, sugar and soap. This will help Faridah generate greater profits and pay her children’s school fees. Faridah hopes that in the future she will be able to build a permanet house for her children.

Faridah 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: Faridah, Nuru
