He trained in bicycle repair, and once he completed the course, set up his own business. At the beginning, he was repairing 5-8 bikes a week – now it is over 30. He has built a good reputation with his high quality work, and is saving money to open a larger shop.
He told us “I can now buy things for myself. I no longer have to rely on others.” Anass said he can now plan for the future, and even think about getting married – knowing that he will be able to provide for his family.
In five years, we will have a big workshop that we own and will take on our own trainees.
