Christine's story

Christine is 23 years old and lives in the town of Seeta in the Mukono region of Uganda. For the past 3 years, Christine has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells soap, bread, milk, and cooking oil. To help expand her business, Christine has requested a loan of 700,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities such as milk, bread, sugar and soap for resale, and will help Christine to generate greater profits, support her family's basic needs and save some money for future use. Christine hopes that in the future she will be able to become a powerful business woman. Christine 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.
