Meet the women behind the masks.
Mahfuza is the sole breadwinner in her house, caring solo for her two teenage children since her recent divorce after 21 years. Just 2 years ago she took the brave step of opening up a small shop and offering her services as a tailor, a craft she’s been dedicated to for 15 years. Being from a remote village, running her own business in the city was a steep learning curve, and despite earning some income through it, it’s never enough to cover her family and business expenses. Now with the pandemic, orders have completely dried up, putting pressure on her and her employees who also depend on the shop for their livelihoods. She believes through this partnership with THP Australia and accessing a new customer base for her work, she will be able to earn what she needs to look after her family!
Munira has been married to her husband for 30 years. Together, they have two children. Munira’s husband has been sick for many years and is unable to work, so she is the sole breadwinner for her family. The whole family depends on the income that Munira earns as a tailor. The pandemic has made it more difficult than ever before for Munira to earn an income as tailoring orders come to a near standstill. This partnership means that Munira can continue to run her business, earn an income and support her family.
