“I am a single mother of one. I worked on the Mimco order as a supervisor for the finishing section which performs the final quality control. The income from the order assisted with school fees for my daughter, new clothes and a regular healthy meal.”

Joan Ndetei, 29


“I am a mother of six. The Mimco order was really important for me in terms of paying school fees for my children. Educating children in my family is not a priority for my husband and so I worked hard to raise tuition fees and meet other needs such as food, school uniform and books. I do not wish to see my children lack education as I do and so Mimco contributed towards fulfilling my wish.”

Maria Teteyio, 37


“I am a mother of five. I worked on the beaded circles during the Mimco order. The income from the order assisted me to meet the weekly contribution to the merry-go-round group. I also invested by buying two goats which I sell in December during the Christmas holidays.”

People first. Fair supply chain. Living wages. Dignified working conditions.

We carry out a Social Impact Report for every collection made in collaboration with the Ethical Fashion Initiative. 

Social workers are embedded in the communities in which we work, and closely monitor the implementation of our code of conduct. 

Extensive data is collected to carefully measure the impact of each order, to ensure that the work is positively impacting the lives of the artisans and that our projects are working towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
