My dream is to own my own production firm so I can create more products.  I have now undergone Kisanii Market training.  Not only can I pay my bills, I’m also improving on my creative skills and nurturing my talent.

I could have lost hope in life looking at the times my children needed me and I was not in a position to provide for them.  I can now even afford to pay school fees and rent, which was very challenging before I joined Kisanii Market.

I can now afford to buy food, but that sometimes was difficult before I joined Kisanii Market.  Without this opportunity, life would be too hard for me and my family.

I, unfortunately, used drugs and was involved in a bad lifestyle.  Since I received the training at Kisanii Market, I can now make leather coasters, wallets, book covers, and pouches.  I have acquired new skills, and now earn a living to help my family.  I am passionate about my work.

I’m married with four children.  My husband is a casual laborer.  We help each other with whatever we get to put food on the table.  Being an artisan for Kisanii Market has helped me pay for my children’s school fees so they can have a better future.

In our community there is lack of employment, Kisanii Market helps by giving employment in this community to the unemployed.  My dream is to join the university.  Through this work, I’m able to save a little.  I know I will join!
