About Me

I am a twenty-three year old Zambian lady who is half orphaned. I was raised by my mother since my father passed away when I was three. I have faced the hardships of life because my mother who was has been the one supporting had a low source of income. I got married off early and moved in with my husband who deals in charcoal business and we have a two year old daughter. Six months ago my sister passed away and so I took up the responsibility of her five year old son who is now in school. We are a family of four.

My Business

A year after my marriage in 2020 I told my husband that I wanted to do something instead of just being a housewife. He then asked me what I liked doing and said he can help me with the capital to start my business so he gave me a little something he had and I bought a sewing machine and started my business. Ever since then I have been helping my husband in running our house and also help my mother with her day to day needs

Project Proposal

when i started my business i had very little capital and so i was forced to buy small and second hand sewing machine. It has been really good but not perfect and so want to buy a bigger and better machine so as to perfect my clothes for sale
