Rebecca is married and she has one son who is currently in school. She has been sewing for school children and adults in her town for 8 years. Prices of materials for sewing school uniforms are currently on the rise and Rebecca therefore wants to use the loan to buy more materials like cotton material, polyester, linen, buttons, etc to increase her stock and also to avoid price hikes. She hopes this loan would help her to start saving to enable her to register to become part of the National Health Insurance Scheme, so that she can also enjoy free medical care with her son. As part of her social responsibility, she is currently training 5 young women to become seamstresses so that they can also earn a living. Rebecca is standing in the middle of the photo. She is a member of the group called Sons of God. Members agree to guarantee for each other to repay the loan.
