How it works: Local tailors purchase cloth and turn it into traditional or Western-style clothing. The clothing can be made "ready to wear," or it can be tailored and designed to fit the individual who orders it.
Why it's important: Clothing production is especially well suited to creating employment because it is labor-intensive. Successful clothing producers grow their businesses by employing others and having each employee specialize in one aspect of the production process.
What your loan can do: The production capacity of a clothing business is limited by two main factors: the owner's ability to acquire material in bulk, and the number of sewing machines owned. An additional sewing machine and supply of cloth can allow the business to take on another full-time employee - creating a new job while boosting production and revenue.
