She is multi skilled with ability to make a variety of items ranging from school and corporate uniforms, dresses as well as embroider table cloths. She is a single mother of one and solely depends on the abilities of her hands and mind to earn a living for herself , her son and parents back in the village.
Her business is in urgent need of a working capital boost to be able to sustain itself. She is very talented but talent alone isn’t enough for her especially after the instabilities she has faced in the recent past. She is seeking $100 from MHML to be able to boost her venture by adding onto her fabric stock as well as meet the costs of running her business.
The continuity of her business will enable her to employ one person to use the second machine that is currently idle in her shop. She has trained many tailors who are currently established enough to provide for themselves and families and this she says is her greatest joy. She shares her passion and gift with others generously. The stability of her business she says will ensure that her son who is sent home for fee time and again can stay in school and concentrate on his studies.
