10-Sep-2020 | News | Petronella Chindumba

23-year old Masauso Njovu has always had a passion for tailoring but he lacked skills and machinery. That changed when he was selected to undergo training in Design and tailoring. He was enrolled on the HSB tailoring course and graduated with good grades. 
Masauso immediately started a tailoring business. He is now happily self-employed through this enterprise, and experiences the joys of being his own boss. 
“The fact that I’m now self-employed has made me independent, I don’t need financial support from my parents anymore as I now earn enough money for my personal expenses.”
Masautso feels proud to be able to help not only his family with everyday expenses, but also his community with affordable clothing. 
He has also engaged himself in farming in order to be food secure and help his family. He used his savings from the business to purchase farming inputs and he has produced 25 bags (50kg) of maize and 5 x (50kg) bags of Soya Beans. He plans to invest more in agriculture as it improves food security for the family. 
 He has taken advantage of the covid-19 situation by supplying the community with facemasks, which has enabled him acquire more income.
