Having trained with TRAX and Tools for Self Reliance in bicycle repair, Ayidaana set up his own business, which is now thriving.
He manages his money to ensure that he can pay for everything he needs to, as well as start saving, and he has even taken on an apprentice, so that he can help someone else to earn a living, as he has had the opportunity to do. Before the training and setting up of his shop, Ayidaana was not working for nine months of the year – now he can pay a labourer to do his share of the family farm work, and support his family with farming costs such as sees or fertiliser.
Ayidaana said that he now feels content with life, and has a purpose.
The tools you supply to us are much better quality than are available locally
