She sews and sells most of the clothes she makes and plies her business in Jinja. She was previously engaged in small-scale farming.

Aisha has had her business for 6 years now, and her weekly sales revenue is to the tune of 120,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX). She intends to use her Kiva loan to purchase an electric sewing machine.
