Eliza’s tailoring course experience at DAPP Amalika satellite centre
My name is Eliza Beula from William 1 village Traditional Authority (TA) Bvumbwe in Thyolo district. After tailoring training, we received the startup tools including a sowing machine, scissors threads, tape measure in a group of three called trios that we are using in our business. As a group, we are doing this business in our village but soon we are moving to Bvumbwe trading center because our business is growing fast.
More customers are able to come to the business place as we are known in the village and girls are inspired when they see us doing our business. This is so because we are producing products with high quality. And now we are able to support our families, buy basic needs and support my parents who are physically challenged. My parents are happy because of the support that I do give to them. We are in trios which is a group of 3 people using one machine which is a challenge
I thank DAPP and Sympany for the skills I acquired. I also encourage DAPP to keep on doing such good things to other girls in order to reduce poverty among women in this country”.
