Social Environment

My name is Rose Mumbi from Laikipia. I’m 45 years old and I joined kiboko in the year 1998 and was employed as general Laborer on the T-Shirt line.  Recently, I was then promoted to design department to assist the designer.  I help her cutting the samples and follow them up while in production. So far I have gained experience in cutting of garments and patterns.

 While in kiboko I have been saving something from my salary and taking small loans from cooperative societies, which has enabled me to buy a small piece of land in Nairobi on which I  have almost finished building my very own house. Soon and very soon I will shift to my new home and stop paying house rent. This is a very good reason why I like working in kiboko.

Many thanks to Kiboko leisure wear.
