Empreza Diak’s training helped me to understand that I had to make different products and promote my work. There are a few tailors and sewers in town, but everyone is making school uniforms. I now make repairs and have just started making bags that no one else is doing so I am getting more clients

We were able to sign our name. For the first time in our lives. And we can write numbers to know how much we spend and how much we receive. It’s amazing
