Sarah's story

Sarah is 19 years old and lives in the town of Seeta in the Mukono region of Uganda. For the past two years, Sarah has been working hard to manage her small outside restaurant, which sells fried chicken, Irish potatoes, and fried fish.

To help expand her business, Sarah has requested a loan of 800,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more chicken, cooking oil, and plates for the business, and will help Sarah to generate greater profits and expand the business into a bigger restaurant. Sarah hopes that in the future, she will be able to own a bigger restaurant.

Sarah 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.
