but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To buy tailoring materials to start making clothes to sell.
Tatu is a mother of two sons, who are at school. She is married and is in her early 40s. She supports her family with tailoring, a business she learned after getting into her own life. Tatu is able to tailor dresses, trousers and shirts of different kinds. She can make up to five styles of clothes. She has been in this enterprise for 8 years now, working from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. per working day. She is able to make a good profit each month. Tatu will make sure that she pays back the loan according to the loan schedule. She will invest her credit to buy tailoring materials to start making clothes to sell. Previously, she used to wait till a customer presented an order with materials, this was due to low capital, which does not allow Tatu to buy her own materials. It has been a hindrance to her business, since it was difficult to capture other customers for ready-made clothes to buy. She believes that with your support her business will have enough materials and finally her business income will rise. She desires to grow her business more.
