A loan of $4,450 helped a member to buy materials for a tailoring business.

Ruth's Group's story

Ruth N. is a hard-working and very friendly woman who has made a living running a tailoring business in Kitega for the last 25 years. She is a married, has eight children and also cares for several orphans. Due to increased competition in her business, the number of customers Ruth serves has been falling, along with her profits. She believes she can turn this around with a loan to her group, pictured here. She will use her portion of this loan to buy more cloth and materials, thereby increasing the number of items she has to sell. Her goal is to earn enough money to allow her children to stay in school and go to college.

In this group: Ruth, Costa, Florence, Madinah, Margaret, Aida, Fatina, Annex, Rehema, Florence, Florence*, Bosa
