I have always been passionate about making beautiful handwoven clothes for my family members and people in my community.
when I was 20 years old I opened a weaving project in my neighborhood where I sell the clothes I make myself.

My Business

I started my business 14 years ago here in Tanga. I do my work at home. I sell clothes woven with cotton fibers and worn by women and men during the winter. people feel at home when they buy clothes from me.
i work every day from 10 pm to 2 am, including saturday and sunday.
I have many clients, and I communicate with them on WhatsApp.
my business allows me to earn a good profit that helps improve my family's standard of living.
I have many needs, which I cannot satisfy because I do not have enough time. I would like to expand my business to provide job opportunities for people in my community.
