I am proud to say that I am now an owner of my own sowing machine which I brought in December 2018 after saving the profits from the tailoring business as a trio (me and my other colleagues) group. As a trio, we make between Mk 10,000 –12,000 per day. Through this I have also managed to buy 3 goats and 1 pig.

Before enrolling into this course, I was a farmer. But now I am proud to say I am a DAPP graduated tailor. I thank my instructors for teaching me these skills that I am using now
