Shiraz was passionate about tailoring ever since she was a child; she used to tailor clothes for her dolls and siblings and was good at it. That is why when she wanted to do something to help her husband cover the expenses of their family of 6, she decided on starting a tailoring project.
In 2016, Shiraz approached MFW asking for help, and she received the support and financing needed to buy the sewing machine and raw material. Ever since she started, her family’s financial situation improved, and they support her by taking care of house chores, especially during high seasons.
Shiraz urges everyone around her to turn to MFW to start their projects for real positive change in their homes and community with these words: “MFW helped in giving me a place within the society, improving my family’s financial situation and establishing my project”.
