Giving other young women sewing skills

This lady (in red) joined the My Business My Freedom program in Nepal and received a microloan to establish a tailoring shop. She is a single mum and has been unable to secure a loan to get established. She loves to sew but has not had the opportunity to advance her skills. With her business now established, through the help of the My Business My Freedom program, she is not only able to support herself and her children but she is also giving back to her community by teaching tailoring skills to local young women.

When single moms are given the opportunity to become self-sustainable, it lessens the influence of traffickers and their lies of a better life. These women also pave the way for their daughters to be safe, educated and talented entrepreneur women.
