I'm housewife of three children and the skills I was given helped me to support my family on food, school fees and I get peace of mind. I'm proud to be different person in my area. They call me to decorate the weddings with my accessories. I work hard while at home and I'm free to work with company and same time I can do tailor made product on my own hand and I get good pay. Marvelous sponsored me to another company to learn and get new experience and exposure. The knowledge and money I got from work make me to be confidence. Now, I'm a teacher to other women groups in the area and I was just standard 7 level. I'm proud of who I am now, and I have freedom to decide to my life and my family." Sifa Koba Marvelous artisan

”Now, I study in University od Dar es salaam and I work here as Internship. I knew this company when I went to Art festival at Dar es salaam. I became fan of this company because products was very cute and high quality!!, and I took a pamphlet then. After four months, I thought "I want to know how to make textile product!" and I visited with pamphlet and asked mama Flotea. After I explained what I want to do, She accepted me. Since that time, I learn how to make product, but I'm left to make website page of Marvelous. Every workers are very charming and take care for me every time. What I was surprised is that I can eat a delicious lunch one of worker cooks here. As I asked Flotea, She said to me "Workers can't work hard, if they worry about food. But If there is a delicious and healthy food, they can work hard because they get enegy from food. And that's why they provide quality products because they love and enjoy the job."
I was impressed, and she continued, "To keep health is very important for work, I am responsible to support them." It is important to keep health to workers especially this country. I get good opportunity to get skills, create new product from recycle denim and Kitenge scraps, to learn how to use waste materials which result to clean our environment. Also to output my experience,and exchange our ideas!!"
