Since the women just started their business they have not done any advertising yet, but they have still had some customers already. People found out about the shop because the women told their families, friends and neighbors about it and in some cases people have seen it when passing by. They also have some customers who had already requested their services before they opened the shop. Their intention is to do more advertising in the future, for example making a signboard and brochures.
The women are renting one room and any profit they make is used to buy more fabrics so they can offer bigger variety to their customers. They hoping to start to make some more profit within three months but this will depend on the number of customers.
So far the tailors are not having any problems everything is working quite well. But if they were to get more money they would like to buy a cupboard to make sure that the fabrics and clothes are safe. Sometimes they have mice coming and making holes in the fabrics and clothes. Furthermore the room the women are renting is quite small, so if they would have the possibility and the money they would like to rent a bigger room, or even two rooms, so they could cook properly there. If they were to buy more fabrics and a cupboard that would be in total 600.000 TZS or about 275 USD.
