Abendowooza Women's Group's story

Irene is 36 years old and has a six-year track record of hard work at her clothing outlet in Kampala. She started her business after she was prevailed upon by close friends and family and after a pep talk. Although she was naïve in the beginning and had some reservations, she has done well and not given in to pessimism. Gradually, her confidence grew and she began to increase the number of customers, endearing them with the good quality of her products. Irene envisions a bright future for her business and word-of-mouth is spreading making her upbeat. She makes a weekly gross sales income of up to 100,000 UGX. Irene also earns additional income from trading in chicks.

Irene is requesting a Kiva loan to purchase more clothing and young chicks to sell.
