About Me

My name is Miss Mirriam Musonda aged 22 years. I hold a certificate in First Aid which I trained with Zambia Red Cross Society.

I am a very determined young lady with several skill in lectures and demonstration and also sewing skills in clothing.

Having adopted at one of the orphanages I learnt a lot of skills from the Zambia Red Cross and today iam of the best lectures who trains girls and vulnerable women in communities and help with skills in first aid and sewing development of clothing.

My Business

Iam involved mainly sewing reusable sanitary pads and also lecture girls especially those dropped out of school and have nothing to do.
I also train the women to improve their livelihood for their family.
I earn good income from reusable sanitary pads and empowering my fellow young women to start earning a living.
Going forward am planning to expand these project and turn into an NGO by bring more youths especially the vulnerable in communities and those moving the street of Lusaka town up and down.

Therefore I need to buy more fabric materials of different types to be making dresses, suits, kitchen party dresses and many more.

Project Proposal

With the funds raised from this loan I need to buy 7 sewing machine to help teach and develop sewing skills for young girls in our community. I have embarked on a bigger project of sewing more reusable washable sanitary pads. This is because the demand has increased for our target market who in this case are the women and young ladies. The profits made will used to to more fabric materials for sewing more clothing so as to earn more income generation and develop more skill in our community.
