Ritah's Group's story

Ritah's Group is comprised of two hard-working women. Ritah is 19 years old and lives in the town of Kalisizo in the Masaka region of Uganda. She is single and has one child. For the past two years, Ritah has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells fresh juice. To help expand her business, Ritah has requested a loan of 300,000 UGX (Ugandan Shillings) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy passion fruit to make juice to sell, and it will help Ritah to generate greater profits and take good care of herself and her parents. Ritah hopes that in the future she will be able to own a big supermarket in town. Ritah 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.
