Sarah's Group's story

Sarah's group is comprised of three hard-working women. Sarah is 22 years old and lives in the town of Kyenjojo in the Mubende region of Uganda. She is married and has two children who are both currently in school. For the past two years, Sarah has been working hard to manage her stationery shop. To help expand her business, Sarah has requested a loan of 800,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more stationery items such as books, pens, staples and computer accessories, and will help Sarah to generate greater profits and improve her family's living standard. Sarah hopes that in the future she will be able to have a very good stable financial life.

Sarah 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.
