A loan of $4,850 helped a member to increase business stock.


Muhoroni Blue Star Group's story

Henry has been in the tailoring business for over 5 years. He started with a borrowed sewing machine, which he used for two years before buying his own machine. During this period, he had to pay back part of his profit sto the owner of the machine while he saved money to buy his own. Due to hard work, he expanded his business until now he has 3 sewing machines.

He is 40 years old and married with 8 children. He has 3 orphans, his late brother's children, that he also takes care of. He uses profits from this business to take care of his family. Two of his children are in secondary school and their school fees have been paid with this money. He intends to use this money to increase the clothing stock for his business.

Henry believes that the determination that has enabled him to grow his business and enabled him to expand from renting a sewing machine to owning 3 of his own, will enable him to expand his business to a large size with more sewing machines. He also believes that he has carved his own niche due to his good and stylish finishings.


Henry is the Chairman of his group and he believes he will use his strong leadership skills to ensure the group pays on time and gets subsequent loans so that he can benefit from more loans to further increase his business size and hence profits. The group has maintained a good attendance rate, coming to meetings on time during training, and are quite cohesive.

In this group: Henry, Sabina, Benson, Petnala, Benard, Margaret, Elizabeth, Sarah, Helidah, Mary, Beatrise, Benta, Titus, Carolyn, Caren, Pamela
