Kyogaya Women's Group Of Jinja's story

N. Betty has been operating her tailoring and bar business in Wakalenge, Jinja, for the last twenty-five years. Her good customer care attributes have been her stock in trade over these years. The 42-year-old happily married mother of six is gleeful at the success she has registered, despite her earlier reservations. Before venturing into her current business, Betty was employed by a high-profile textile factory. It is from here that she learnt her seamstress skills. She points out that the education of her children is a milestone she always cherished to achieve. In this time of running her own business she has minimally broken the back of that dream. With this loan Betty wants to buy more drinks for her bar and also buy sewing machines.
