Deborah's Group's story

Deborah's group is comprised of 3 hard working women. Deborah is 20 years old and lives in the town of Kiyinda in the Mubende region of Uganda. She is single and has one child. For the past 2 years, Deborah has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells rice, juice, cooking oil and beans.
To help expand her business, Deborah has requested a loan from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more maize, rice, sugar, and soap to sell, and will help Deborah to generate greater profits and improve her family’s standard of living. Deborah hopes that in the future she will be able to build a house of her own.
Deborah 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: Deborah, Annet, Aisha
