Maureen Cheyech

Maureen joined our program in 2015 to pursue her dream of being a fashion designer and seamstress. She had dropped out of school while in class 7 after getting pregnant. She moved in with her sister who lives in Kapenguria and learnt of Jitokeze. Since she loved sewing she decided to join our program although her family did not support her. in 2016, she completed her training and all the commission she had made went into offsetting her fee balance. in 2017, she got herself a second hand sewing machine and started her sewing busines. business was not good and all she could get were clothes to mend which was not fetching her good money. Maureen decided to ask us for work when her business was low. through the commission she is earning, she plans on buying a new sewing machine and fabrics to boost her business.
