Sewing Machines for 2 Young Entrepreneurs
About the Cause
Our church is blessed with the ability to teach the students who attend our program basic sewing skills. You can see the photos of the sewing workshop and some of the beautiful items the students learn to make! When they graduate, they are then able to work as seamstresses and earn an income for themselves and their family! One young lady received this training and got a job making clothes after graduation. She is working for someone else, but desires to start her own small business. We want to help more students like her be able to achieve their entrepreneurship dreams and also that as their business grow they can provide work for other people. This project is also done with the goal that as beneficiaries see more opportunities in Guatemala, they can avoid migration and the risks it has.
We want to buy equipment for 2 outstanding students from our sewing workshop. The equipment consists of 3 industrial machines to work in items such as t-shirts, pullover/hoodies and exercise pants, etc. One of them is a current beneficiary in the Compassion program, and the other is a recent alumni. We are excited to see what these sewing machines could do in these students’ lives!
Once we receive the funds, it will take us one month to purchase the sewing machines and get the two recipients set up with their new equipment. After that we will share photos of them, as well as an update about how their small businesses are going.
