Nezikokolima Kitega Women's Group-Lugazi's story

Salama N., 36, has been operating her tailoring business in Kitega-Lugazi for seven years now. Before this enterprise, this happily married mother of six was more preoccupied with farming as a means of subsistence.

Salama says she began this business with her own savings, unlike many of her contemporaries who rely on bank loans. Her niche in the market has been growing, and she attributes this to her good relationship skills and word of mouth. The determination and diligence she has personified has seen her make significant headway in her operations, especially as regards being able to sell her clothes beyond Lugazi.

Weekly, this business generates her 70,000 shillings, and she says with this loan, she is going to buy new textiles for making clothing.
