I worked on the Mimco Spring-Summer 2016 order. I had a great experience and I learned a lot. Even when it was difficult at times, I did my best to satisfy the customer. This order has been a great help to me, particularly in supporting my children. I love to work so I can help my children. I love to learn because I know I can succeed with many things that I learn.

I am an orphan. I worked on the Mimco Spring-Summer 2016 order as both a jewellery mounter and beader. It was my first work experience and because I received training in jewellery mounting it’s now a new job for me. With the money from the order I helped my aunt who was very sick, and I have been saving, it has been a very great benefit.

I was looking for a job because I needed money to send my child to school. I worked on the Mimco Spring-Summer 2016 order in beading and packaging. It was a very interesting experience.
