Zaina's Group's story

Zaina's group is comprised of 4 hard working women. Zaina is 20 years old and lives in the town of Kiyinda in the Mubende region of Uganda. She is married and has 2 children. For the past 2 years, Zaina has been working hard to manage her small food business, which sells fresh foods.
To help expand her business, Zaina has requested a loan from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more fresh food such as bananas, and cassava to sell, and will help Zaina to generate greater profits and expand her business. Zaina hopes that in the future she will be able to improve her economic status.
Zaina 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: Zaina, Margret, Recheal, Harriet
