Kabare Tusimukye Women Group's story

Jones is a member of a Kabare Tusimukye Women Group and a mother of six children who are all in school.

She is a business woman with a tailoring business that she started in 2009. The business is located in a nearby trading centre. She started it with a purpose of getting money to help earn a living. In addition to the tailoring business, she also sells coffee, which boosts her income in a given period. She works six days on the tailoring business and works 12 hours per day. Her clients are mainly schools in her vicinity since they give her tenders to make school uniforms for the students. She has high hopes that her business will expand, which will help her family to develop. Her biggest challenge is competition from other tailors in the area, but she hopes that if the loan (500,000 UGX is her share) is given, she will buy more materials and compete favorably and hence succeed.

The eighth person at the extreme right is the Ugafode credit officer.
