Unfortunately, you would not be able to sponsor sis to  one to the U.K. on a permanent visa but you can look at a tourist visa for a short visit. This visa will be valid for 6 months.

Can I sponsor her tourist visit?
Expert:  LawyerAk replied 11 days ago.

You can sponsor her on a tourist visa she must also be able to show her financial status and her home ties such as property or employment.
