A loan of $800 helped buy stock of tailoring materials.


Rosemary's story

Rosemary O. is a 27-year-old married mother of 2 children. She has spent two years learning the art of dressmaking/embroidery and has offered her tailoring services within her community in Kisumu, Kenya since 2002. She specializes in making women’s dresses, men’s shirts and also embroidery. Despite the stiff competition in her area, Rosemary has always been able to attract old and new customers. She constantly updates her materials to keep up with the current fashions, offers a wide selection of patterns and maintains a good stock to meet her customers’ demands. Her hard work, years of experience and well-established client base ensure that her business will continue to succeed. She plans to use three quarters of her next loan of US $ 800 to buy new patterns and materials, and save the remaining amount into her account to use in case of unforeseen circumstances.
