My Own Clothing Store

My name is Yeshi and I am 31 years old. I never had the opportunity to go to school. I am a mother of two children, my 13-year-old son, who is in first year in junior high school, and my 6-year-old daughter, who is not ready for school yet. Together with my husband, we try our best to give our children a good future. Sometimes I can find temporary jobs and earn a little bit of money. With no education, it is not possible to secure a stable job where I can earn a decent income.

I am so grateful for the opportunity to be part of this training program. For me, a housewife who has never been to school, I’ve had a very good experience in this skills training. It made a big change for me – from an illiterate to a skilled woman. After three months of training, I got very good grades and won the second prize in the final product assessment.

I also made some good friends. Most of us women have never gone to school, and our families are all the same, so there is no dislike or inferiority when we are together. Our goals are the same – to learn this skill well for our own future and improve our family situation.

My husband has been working in a temporary job with a monthly salary of about 3,000 RMB (USD 470), so he has been able to save a little money. After graduation, I was able to work in a Tibetan clothing store. It was a little difficult at first, but I believe that my skills are not inferior to others. I also believe that I can rely on this skill to reduce the burden on my husband, and to improve the situation of the family.

At the end of December, we rented a house and bought two sewing machines. I have realized my desire to open a clothing store of my own. It’s not very good, but gradually I believe it will get better and better.

Finally, I would like to thank the kind people for giving me this opportunity. I wish the good people a safe life and a prosperous career!
