OPUWO, 09 JUL (NAMPA) ? Ten small and medium entrepreneur (SME) seamstresses in the Opuwo, Outjo and Epupa constituencies received fabric from the Ministry of Trade and Industry here on Monday evening.
The materials are remains from the Ramatex Garment Factory in Windhoek after it closed down in May 2008.
Each of the women received eight roles of different materials.
One of the beneficiaries told Nampa that at first she thought it was useless fabric because some are in small pieces, and did not realise it was already cut-out t-shirt pieces.
?I only come to realise that four bags of the material I received contain already cut-out designs of t-shirts, which requires me to only put them together and start selling them already,? said Kaparerue Muheje.
She expressed her gratitude to the government, saying she is very happy to have been given the donation.
?The materials are of high quality, and one t-shirt can easily sell for between N.dollars 100 and N.dollars 150 after completion,? said Muhenje.
Another beneficiary, Uaisaneuavi Musaso also expressed her appreciation for the donation.
?I already completed five t-shirts. The materials are of good quality and are also good for bed sheets,? noted Musaso.
