Employer for other craftsmen
In my search for a way out, I came across the German Information Centre for Migration, Vocational Training and Career (DIMAK) in Pristina. My advisor there talked to me about my interests and my plans for the future. I explained that I would really like to work independently. DIMAK referred me to the Mother Teresa Organisation. This is where I was trained in working with wood and was able to greatly improve my skills. After I completed my training, I received a grant for my business equipment in the form of tools and machines.
I’m gradually expanding my business. Initially I mostly produced wooden kitchen tools and furniture. Now I’m fitting out entire restaurants and employ other craftspeople in my workshop. I’m also employed as a department manager at a DIY store. My work means a lot to me and I have a lot of confidence in myself. In future I’d like to be realising major projects involving 50 or 60 craftspeople.
