Wise Business Approaches

Isiolo Empowerment Centre, Kenya


Veronica says that she can earn 15,000 shillings per month because, on top of the tailoring work, she added a small business of selling clothes and food stuff in her village within the safe estate. She also does her tailoring at home which she said is convenient because she can monitor her business and be there when customers bring their clothes to her home. This is especially convenient school uniform repairs since the town is far from where they live. It is also convenient for the village to do minor repairs at her shop from time to time.


Veronica still comes to empowerment centre to learn more skills from teacher Stephen. The empowerment programme has inspired many young girls because others like Veronica have seen their lives transformed tremendously for the good.
