This is 40-year-old Isha from Calabatown. She is married and has three children between the ages of 3 and 20 years. She began her business because when her Father died in 1985 there was no one to take care of her education. She started helping neighbors with their domestic work. After four years of suffering, one of the neighbors she used to help sent her to a vocational training center to do a course in tailoring and hair dressing.

Isha runs a tailoring shop. She sells clothing for males and females. She has been running this business for five years. She works at the business seven days per week. She also earns income from hair dressing. She says that the main challenge to her business is price inflation.

Isha has requested a loan in order to buy a new sewing machine, wax cotton, and bamaku (a tie-dyed cloth). The extra income from this loan will allow her to improve her business. In the future, she plans to own a tailoring factory. She appreciates your support.
