Sophiloat lives locally in Lilongwe and heard about our training programme from previous graduates. She spoke to Elizabeth who coordinates the training programme in Chinsapo (a villiage set on the outskirts of Lilongwe) and was selected to be a part of it.
Sophiloat has five children and her husband is currently unemployed. She joined the Mayamiko training programme so that she could learn tailoring skills, as this will help bring money into her household.
She has greatly enjoyed the training so far and has found it very helpful – when her children’s clothes need mending she no longer needs to take it to a tailor as she can do it herself!
After Sophiloat graduates she plans to start her own business.
Sophiloat hopes that in the future she will have a wonderful family that will not lack anything they need, she wants to be an independent women who can proudly contribute to her household income. With Sophiloat’s positive attitude, drive and the skills learnt during the Mayamiko training course, we are sure she will succeed in building a better future for herself and her family.
