Angshutso’s New-found Confidence

Angshutso was part of the Husky Energy Tailoring Skills Program for Women and completed her training in July 2019. Angshutso is a single mom. She owns no cattle or sheep and has only been to grade 2 at school. The program gave her skills in a variety of clothing designs and the confidence that her clothes were of such quality that she could sell them.

She asked one of her long time friends if she would help her create and sell clothes. Angshutso has taught her friend the fine art of designing quality clothes and together they are growing a small business.

Their customers started with friends and others in their small community but word has spread about the quality of their clothes that they are now receiving orders from far and wide. The women recently received 50 orders of simple Tibetan robes. They can make one robe per day. Together, they are now earning an average salary of 2,000 yuan [US$250] each month. The women often work late into the night to complete orders but their smiles show that they wouldn’t have it any other way. They can hold their heads high in their communities and provide their children with a good education.

Thank you to Husky Energy for making all this possible.
