Babonere Kuiffe Women's Development Group-Jinja's story

B. Iren, aged 34, dreams of giving her family improved standards of living in the future. She belongs to the Babonere Kuiffe Group of Mpungwe-Jinja. Her tailoring and second-hand clothes' business, which she has been operating for the past seven years in Mpungwe-Jinja, has become a byword for good service and organisation.

Iren is the married mother of four school-going children. She plans to buy more textile material for making clothes and to buy clothes to resell once she accesses this Kiva loan. She started off by hiring sewing machines.

Prior to beginning this business, she was mostly selling tomatoes and sweet bananas. Her business notwithstanding its many challenges generates close to 100,000 UGX a week. She lays this down to virtues like hard work, good customer care and friendliness. She says this loan will help her to expand her business. In her opinion, she will be in a position to buy more clothes and in reselling she will be establishing an advantage for her growing business, i.e. more profits.

In this group: Iren, Margret, Mary, Asadi, Edith, God, Alice Kwiffe, Lose, Loy, Slyvia, Zaina, Zamu, Scovia, Robert
