A loan of $1,700 helped a member to purchase clothing materials and other accessories for her business.

Jessica's Group's story

Jessica M. is the chairperson of the Waina Group in Jinja. She is married with eight children, three of whom are still in school. Jessica has a tailoring business where she makes and mends clothes especially for women and children, not men. The reason for this is that men never believe that a woman can ever make their clothes right. She has been in the business for over ten years and had never received a loan elsewhere until two years ago when she joined Pearl Microfinance. Jessica is grateful that in such a short time, she has been able to buy another sewing machine, making it three, with one used for training young girls how to sew, one for her business, and another which she uses at home. Jessica needs a loan to buy clothing materials and other accessories like threads and needles for her business.
