Faridah's Group's story

Faridah's group is comprised of two hard working women. Faridah is 22 years old and lives in the town of Seeta in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has two children, one of them currently in school. For the past three years, Faridah has been working hard to manage her small market business selling raw bananas. To help expand her business, Faridah has requested a loan of 800,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more raw food such as matooke, Irish potatoes and sweet potatoes, and will help Faridah to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her child. Faridah hopes that in the future, she will be able to become a powerful businesswoman in town. Faridah 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. "
