Aisha's Group's story

Aisha's group is comprised of three hardworking women. Aisha is 20 years old and lives in the town of Seeta in the Mukono region of Uganda. For the past two years, Aisha has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells sugar, salt and bread.

The loan will be used to purchase more essential commodities such as bread and cooking oil for the store to sell, and will help Aisha to generate greater profits and improve her family's stardands of living. Aisha hopes that in the future, she will be able to become a powerful businesswoman in town.

Aisha 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.
