Florence's Group's story

Florence's group is comprised of 2 hard working women. Florence is 20 years old and lives in the town of Nakifuma in the Mukono region of Uganda. For the past 3 years, Florence has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells essential commodities.

To help expand her business, Florence has requested a loan of 800,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential goods like sugar and salt for the business, and will help Florence to generate greater profits and take good care of her family's basic needs. Florence hopes that in the future she will be able to open up another retail shop.

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.

In this group: Florence, Prossy
