A loan of $2,350 helped a member to purchase additional sewing machines for her business.


Twegatte Women's Group, Kampala's story

Her fifteen-year-old tailoring business has stood her in such good stead in her locality that laurels coming her way have been inevitable. 38-year-old K. Sarah began as a home-based seamstress until she realized her trade could bring her long drawn out financial dividends.

The future business prospects for this married mother of two are looking good, going by the 400,000 shillings Sarah makes in a month and the experience she has now gained. Her business has seen success in subsequent years because of the demand by many people for traditional wear, clothes she starting making five years ago.

Sarah’s two children have both completed school, courtesy of her business. Throughout these fifteen years in business, her reliable recourse has invariably been her good customer care skills.

With this loan, Sarah is upbeat with conviction that she will be able to buy some additional sewing machines to add to those she already has.

In this group: Sarah, Harriet, Hadijjah, Fausta, Rose, Gorretti, Costa, Aida
