A loan of $3,475 helped a member the purchase of more rolls of textile material.


Ekirirwa Eira Womens's Group-Jinja's story

In kyanagwa-Jinja is where one will locate 38 year old N. Nubu’s tailoring business. Her track record in this business stretches to a time frame of 9 years.

Whilst many people grumble about the unraveling of Uganda’s textile industry, being that Ugandans are now more than ever inclined to buy second hand clothing, she has not wavered an inch in her determination to make her business a success.

For this married mother of 4 who, as she recounts, began with a vegetable selling business, there has been a relative turn in people’s preferences, especially from her vantage point. In a week, her business makes her profits that amount to 45,000 shillings. She also runs a poultry business.

With this loan, she wants to buy more rolls of textile material to make clothing.

In this group: Nubu, Rose, Justine, Lukman, Harriet, Jane, Florence, Aramathan, Umar, Grace, Zalika, Abu, Ayina, Lydia, Janet, Rose, Irene, Mwaidhuma, Teo, Monic
