I Am Now an Employer of Labour
Right from the inception of the programme, I knew that it was going to be a life-changing opportunity for the participants especially the mentorship programme. At first, I was in the dark as to what meeting and working with my mentor will be like, since he is someone I have never met before. But this anxiety was shattered when on my first meeting with my mentor I discovered that he is an easy-going, hard-working man that pays attention to every detail.
After four months of the programme, my clothing line that was still budding when I began this training, gained recognition in the market with demands exceeding supply in a great dimension. The company moved from a 2-workers to a 4-workers establishment. Currently we are working on reaching maximum 10 or minimum 6 before the end of the year 2013. Now, I am working on launching my label between the end of 2013. The label will help to distinguish my product and establish the brand name as a leading one because of the quality of our products.
