Sharon's Group's story

"Sharon's group is comprised of 3 hard working women. Sharon is 16 years old and lives in the town of Luwero in the Luwero region of Uganda. For the past 2 years, Sharon has been working hard to manage her small restaurant, where sells fast food.

To help expand her business, Sharon has requested a loan of 300000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more Irish potatoes and cooking oil for the business, and will help Sharon to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her sister. Sharon hopes that in the future she will be able to renovate her house.

Sharon 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.
