Lamula's Group's story

Lamula's group is comprised of four hardworking women. Lamula is 18 years old and lives in the town of Seeta in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is single and has one child who is currently in school. For the past two years, Lamula has been working hard to manage her hairdressing salon. To help expand her business, Lamula has requested a loan of 800,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more hair extensions and a dryer for the salon. It will help Lamula to generate greater profits and pay for her child's school fees. Lamula hopes that, in the future, she will be able to build a house of her own. Lamula 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: Lamula , Mary, Agness, Esther
