Kakindu Rural Development Action Group's story

35-year-old Betty, a happily married and diligent mother of 2 children, has been offering tailoring services in Mityana for close to 5 years now. Betty says she started sewing only school uniforms, at length however with the increase in demand from clients, she has diversified into sewing other types of clothes that she now sells. Betty says her client base consists mainly of retail business people. In the future, she says she plans to purchase a plot of land to construct a residential family house. Weekly, she says this business generates for her 60,000 shillings in profit. She says with this KIVA loan, she is going to purchase more textile materials to make clothes.
