A loan of $2,200 helped a member to more and better clothing fabric for her tailoring business.


Kigasa Akimanyi Group's story

Jane, 40 years old, is a buoyant, good-natured and affable lady. The mother of four, she operates a seven-year-old tailoring business in Kampala. Jane says that 7 years in this business have broadened her understanding of running a business, consolidating its gains, doing proper planning to ensure growth, and handling the many challenges which crop up in its operation. She sews and sells all types of clothes but has realised that school uniforms are always in high demand and she takes orders from many schools to make their school uniforms. With schools mushrooming around Kampala, Jane anticipates getting even more clients. Jane got her tailoring skills from an apprentice tailoring school. On the side, she runs a rental business. Monthly, this business generates profits totaling shillings 120,000. This loan she says is to help her purchase more and better clothing fabric to make more clothes to sell.
