Faith from Eldoret, Kenya

Ready to start my own dress-making business. I just need a sewing machine to get started!

I need to pay for my training course and sewing machine to start on my path towards owning my own business.


I am a 22-year-old single woman. I am an obstetric fistula survivor from Kenya. I am currently enrolled in a formal dressmaking school.

My goals are to complete my training so I can start my own business. I want to be able to stand on my own and support myself.

I need to pay for my training course and pay for my sewing machine.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to start my own business and stand on my own.
