Dadirai started tailoring business two years ago. She started by sewing five ladies skirts. Variety was not possible since she did not have enough money for the materials. Through the ROSCAs, she managed to buy more materials and also to purchase a sewing machine. Dadirai is confident that by buying an over locking machine, her overheads can go down as she will not have to send work out. A Kiva loan can help Dadirai purchase an over locking machine.
