Florence's story

Florence is 18 years old and lives in the town of Kayunga in the Mukono region of Uganda. For the past three years, Florence has been working hard to manage her restaurant where she sells cooked food. To help expand her business, Florence has requested a loan of 400,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more fresh food, meat, chicken and other foods for the restaurant. This will help Florence to generate greater profits and expand her business into a bigger restaurant. Florence hopes that in the future, she will be able to own a hotel in Kayunga town. Florence 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.
