Kyabagyerwa Church Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy another sewing machine so she is able to create employment for an additional person.
Kyabagyerwa Church Group's story
Beatrice is a 54-year-old widow with nine children. She was happily married to her husband and in 1989 her husband died in an accident. She looked for all possible ways to survive because she was staying in a semi-finished house and had no stable income. She then contacted the leader of her church who talked to his followers and they assisted her by sending her to a tailoring course. After the course she bought one tailoring machine and started a small business repairing clothes. She developed that and now she has 4 tailoring machines which are helping her to boost her income. From her business income she has managed to send her children to school and even sustain the family with all their basic needs. She has finished working on her house and now she has hopes of developing her business into a tailoring training school. She will use the loan to buy another sewing machine to create employment for one extra person. She thanks UGAFODE for partnering with the group. She is confident her dreams will soon come true.
