A loan of $2,525 helped a member to buy a sewing machine.


Boston Elshadai Devt Group's story

Aidah is a married business lady with four children and a member of Boston Elshadai Development group who currently runs a tailoring business and a small retail shop in one of the city’s low-scale suburbs. Aidah is a responsible, hardworking woman who runs several business activities to sustain her family's pressing needs - something she has done for over ten years. She is only challenged by limited capital which she hopes will soon be history after the partnership with Kiva through UGAFODE. She will use the loan to buy an electronic sewing machine that will make her work faster and easier. This will increase her output and profits in the long run since she will be able to sew many clothes in a short time.

In this group: Annet, Margret, Evelyn, Aidah, Edward, Zam, Jennifer, Maureen, Zam, William, Ruth, Josephine, Esther, Edith
