On the course at the Namasuba College of Commerce, Veronica along with the other WOMA graduates learned how to sew a variety of garments including – gowns, shorts, skirts, pinafores, baby dresses and shorts together with skirts and school uniforms.
In addition to this she attended entrepreneurship lessons where she was taught how to set up her own business and manage customers. Now that she has finished her course she would like to design and make her own clothes.
She plans to rent a workshop with Carol and Nusura and together they will be looking for contracts for sewing school uniforms.
After finishing her course Nusura approached a neighbour to ask if she could use her machine to complete making her Gomesi, the traditional wear of the Buganda tribe in Uganda. She is now planning to rent her own machine and will be looking for work as an assistant tailor.
Carol is looking forward to renting a machine and putting into practice the skills she’s learned on her course.
Joyce has already been successful in getting a tailoring job in the trading centre of her village in Eastern Uganda and has already started saving. She is very excited about the future and says her life will never be the same.
