Osseini Djibo, aged 20, is not only a DIMA student, but is also the owner of his very own tailoring shop. Just opened recently, the shop has three sewing machines, a big table for cutting, and shelves for storing fabric, patterns and tools.
Osseini says he is lucky to live in an area where people prefer to have tailors make their clothes. Business has been good enough that he already employs three additional people.
Osseini decided to study tailoring at DIMA because it offered him the opportunity to work for himself and determine his own working conditions. He says he is very fortunate to have been able to have free training through DIMA.
