Francisca Mambwe Mutupa is the proprietor of the Nachi clothing hub in Nyimba town Eastern Zambia. She is renowned for her unique fabric designs and warm personality. She shares her inspirational business journey..
"I started designing and sewing at home on a small tailoring machine in 2017. In 2019 the demand for my services grew and I decided to rent a small shop in town. When UMINO started its operations in Nyimba, one of my friends told me about the financial services they were offering. At that time, the demand for my services had increased and I needed to buy an electric sewing machine. I applied for a loan to buy the machine to help boost production of school uniforms, wedding dresses and events attires. Later from the profits I generated, I was able to buy another electric sewing machine. I now have three electric sewing machines and have managed to create jobs for others through this business. I look forward to working with UMINO to grow my business further and create more jobs for others".
As UMINO our sole responsibility is to empower our clients actualize their business aspirations and contribute to the socio-economic well being of the communities in our areas of operation.
