Domestic Worker can be an entrepreneur

Posted on

name: Jena / age: 38 / profession: Domestic worker / location: singapore / weekday: Sunday / reference:  We often asked ourselves, is there life after being a migrant domestic worker? My answer is yes! But we need to work hard and be dedicated to achieve this. We also need to learn the basic mathematics earnings – expenses = savings. Every Sunday during my day off I spend some time in studying and sometime in volunteering to serve my fellow domestic workers. I chose the entrepreneurship course because that’ how I see myself after being a domestic worker. On my graduation day, I even received an award ‘best business plan’ which is also based on my own business plan as entrepreneur someday.
