Moureen's story

Moureen is 18 years old and lives in the town of Hima in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. For the past three years, Moureen has been working hard to manage her business which sells beans.

To help expand her business, Moureen has requested a loan of 600,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to improve the business and add more and different types of beans to sell. This will help Moureen to generate greater profits and help generate income. Moureen hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business.

Moureen 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.
