Aferdita has turned her passion into a profession. Thanks to the support of DIMAK, she successfully runs her own tailoring business.
I am Aferdita from Kosovo. I am 47 years old and have been working as a self-employed tailor for five years. The year 2017 was a turning point in my life. When I was looking for a new job, friends told me about the German Information Centre for Migration, Vocational Training and Career (DIMAK). That's how I found out about the training for aspiring tailors.
The training is aimed at people who want to start their own business in tailoring and sewing. It is organised by the NGO "Nena Tereze" and DIMAK. Although I did not know how to sew at all before, I decided to participate. I just wanted to learn something new and so my adventure with the new profession began.
