NEWSGARDENERS STRIKE OUT AS CARPENTERS2011-11-23
A group of 30 men have now completed their training in how to make furniture. From chairs to beds, the men have mastered welding and carpentry skills, as well as the basics of running a business.
Ten of them have formed a consortium and taken out a microfinance loan with SEED to help them start out: purchasing tools and initial raw materials. They have already secured a contract with a local school and have made their first loan repayment ahead of schedule!
"At first I wasn't that serious, but I later realised without doubt that this was my glorious opportunity and grabbed it. I'm proud of my achievements, courtesy of SEED. I have now graduated to become a complete man," remarks a delighted Mr Chimwayi.
