Peninah’s Sewing Business Keeps Food on the Table

Peninah graduated from our sewing project in 201 6 and is now running her own business. We visited her last year and found her busy at the sewing machine she received from Elimu. Along with her individual customers, Peninah was pleased to announce that she had scored a contract with a nearby school to produce uniforms ‘on demand’ for their students.

Her sewing business helped keep food on the table for herself, her parents and siblings when devastahng floods washed away most of the community~s crops early last year. Peninah is extremely grateful for her sewing business and all that she gained through Elimu.
