About Me

I 'am an old lady called locally as "soso" because of grandchildren. I have been knitting as a young girl using sticks till i was assisted crotchets. In my knitting i managed to small sewing machine which i placed at friends Veranda and get repair work for mostly dresses. Most of the time at veranda where I 'm supposed to business its a place where i interact with my grandchildren and their friends. I have a number of grandchildren who have developed interest in textile industry. This business of mine helps me to give presents to my grandchildren who impressed me.

My Business

Hello zidisha lenders, Its first to buy materials for my repair work and later on purchase a sewing machine. I normally repair dresses, but with a number of grandson making it resting place the young men also repairs here. The profit will be used for buying my grandchildren presents. I used to do handsewing as a hobby which gradually became a full training services. It has became livelihood for my family and some grandchildren require tailoring and dressing as a career it has became so inspiring to many. The typical cost is purchase of material sheets, at $15.00 buttons $ 1.00 and zips $ 1.50. The profit i will use to buy presents for my grandsons at the end of the term and support them in shopping when the school opens.

Loan Proposal

$20.00 for the major repair improvement of my machine. This will definitely improve my service to customers and the community at large. Intend to generate 6% profit.
