I’m the one among of the YEP Tanzania beneficiaries based in Sengerema District. Before joining the YEP training on 2011 I used to attend the special training on how to make sweaters and cloth decorations. So when I joined YEP class I really wanted to use my sweater skills to make a good business and Sengerema Foundation/ YEP Tanzania helped me to reach that goal. Currently I own my shop dealing with making and selling school sweaters, selling tailoring equipment and clothing decorations. I managed to reach this stage because I received a start up capital from YEP Tanzania after one year of training. Definitely I am using my experience and knowledge to educate young entrepreneurs in Tanzania.
I participate as a YEP trainer during basic training, entrepreneurship workshop, loan approval and visiting business starters for coaching and monitoring and also mentoring.
