“My name is Wilna Charlot. I am working as an artisan at DOT. The MIMCO order was really helpful for me. I learnt a lot from this order. Thanks to it, I am able to make necklaces. I am quite proud that the MIMCO order gave me the opportunity to work. I am very happy and would like to learn much more.”
My name is Richard Richemond. I have been working for DOT for eight months. This order was a great opportunity to learn a lot and improve my beading skills. I also used the income to pay my rent and support my family.
