Hi All, we have had another repayment so "our" total is now £6.48!!

Here is another sewer looking for a loan.........

Kousar Shoaib is 41 and married with two sons and one daughter. She lives with her family in an area called Badami Bagh, which is in the city of Lahore. All of her children are in school and their school fees are 2,000 rupees per month. She wants to provide them with a good education and wants to see them as educated persons. Kousar and her husband both work as tailors from home. They make made to measure clothing as well as offering repairs and alterations and earn around 18,000 rupees (around £110) per month in total. Initially she was working with a manual sewing machine which was time consuming and required a lot of energy. She has one jockey (electric) machine and wants to buy another so she and her husband both can work and sew more clothes. She has requested a loan which she will pay in 17 installments. She will buy jockey (electric) machine, cloth and sewing supplements.

If you'd like to help get in touch!!

Her husband is a hairdresser and earns about 8,000 rupees (about $82) per month. Her husband has some psychological issues and she has to spend some money on his medical treatment every month. Musarrat is a seamstress. She is currently working according to contracts she receives from shopkeepers to embroidery ladies clothes. She reckons that she also earns around 8,000 profit per month. She visits different markets with samples and obtains the orders. She is working very hard and wants to provide her daughters with the opportunity to continue onto higher education. She is always looking for business expansion opportunities. Nasreen applied for a loan, repayable in 15 installments, to buy cloth in bulk.

Just trying to imagine 20,000 buttons. You know how you see in films when people get rich & they cover a bed in notes & lie on it, I think I'd have to do that with all those buttons!

Hi All, I am posting this on several threads because I don’t want anybody to miss it!

As you know I am raffling my “4 Seasons” quilt to raise funds for our local Opportunities playgroup. Thank you to those who have already joined in!! The question is “How long did it take me to make this quilt?” and it is £1.00 a go! The times go from 49 hours to 61 hours in 5 min intervals

You may have also seen my “jelly-roll slam “ quilt. That is also being raffled ….. this time to raise money for “Lend with care” and that is a straight raffle…. Again £1.00 a go!

I am sorry to be doing 2 at the same time but I don’t have any more opportunities!!

Send me a pm if you’d like to try to win either quilt!

Many thanks

Best Rosemary

I have also just made another loan , partly from repayments and the rest from what was in the account!

"Mercy is 60 years old. She has two grown up children. Mercy is clothes and fabric seller. She lives in the neighborhood of Sagbado in the city of Lome. Mercy launched 20 years ago, her own business where she sells in particular,fabrics, clothes and shoes for women. Mercy
travels three times in a year to Senegal and Mali where she buys her articles. Her customers come to her house to buy the articles and sometimes, she operates like an itinerant trader. She is requesting a loan in order to increase her stock and extend her activity by buying 1000 yards of fabrics and 30 boxes of shoes. She aims to repay the loan over 12 months. Mercy hopes that she will expand her business and better improve the life of her family. "

I hope you approve!

Best Rosemary
