A loan of $1,875 helped a member to purchase more clothing materials for her business.


Luganda Kulya Group-Kampala's story

The trend now in Uganda is to do business and get wealthy with time. It is a sharp contrast with the emphasis that was laid on education by most people in the 1970s and 1980s. The situation today favors business undertakings rather than white collar jobs, which are hard to come by. In keeping with this stream of thought, 35-year-old N. Aisha made a decision to start her own tailoring business five years ago. With 100,000 and 400,000 shillings as weekly and monthly profits respectively, she is one happy woman. All of her five children are doing well at school and she is proud of the fact that she is paying their fees. With this loan, Namirima wants to buy more cloth to make more clothes to sell on a large scale. She hopes this will enable her to earn more income.
