Roydah lives with her husband and children – neither she nor her husband were in work when she started her tailoring training at Kabushi Entrepreneur and Vocational Training Centre. She wanted to learn a skill, but initially found the techniques challenging – the staff at KEVTC helped her keep going when she was struggling.
Everything Roydah learned was new to her – designing and cutting patterns, managing records, and looking after customers. She now works from home, in a small room set aside for her business – in five years time Roydah would like to have a larger shop, and people working for her.
In five years, we will have a big workshop that we own and will take on our own trainees.
