Sikajje's story

Sikajje is a 44 year old divorcee with four children. Two of her children attend school. She started tailoring in 1998 so that she could sustain her family's needs as a single mother. Out of hard work, she has managed to get contracts to make sport uniforms and sweaters for some schools. This has helped her educate her children. She would like a loan of UGX 2,000,000 to buy materials for sewing the uniforms. Her challenge is that she lacks enough capital to buy all of the materials. She is also challenged by the lack of a good sewing machine to make the work faster; the local machines are time consuming and of poor quality. She is also unable to meet her customer's needs at the moment. Her dream is to buy foreign machines to make her work better and faster. Sikajje is very hard working and shrewd.
