I was born a healthy child, however at the age of 2 I contracted polio and had a serious operation

slowly learnt to sew. I then started my own tailoring business which was quite successful, and I
had enough money to live. However my income varied a lot depending on how many customers I had,
and I sometimes had to wait around for a long time for work. In 2013, I heard about Neema Crafts
and the job opportunities for tailors here, so I applied for a job...
