Bahemuka's Group's story

Bahemuka's group is comprised of two hard-working women. Bahemuka is 17 years old and lives in the town of Kyenjojo in the Mubende region of Uganda. For the past two years, Bahemuka has been working hard to manage her small food stall, which sells fresh food.

To help expand her business, Bahemuka has requested a loan of 300,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more fresh food, such as raw bananas and sweet potatoes, to add to her business. This will help Bahemuka to generate greater profits and develop her business more. Bahemuka hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land.

Bahemuka 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.
