Meet Latifa

“I live in the west end of Newcastle with my husband and children. It was my dream to be self-employed running my own business selling beautiful scarves and hijabs. I contacted The Millin Charity to enquire about having a stall at a market. I then found out about lots of training courses and support they were providing which helped me on my journey.

Before I joined the Millin Charity I didn’t know many people. But now I’ve made lots of friends and I feel like I have lots of support from the women who attend the project. I am now more experienced and confident selling at markets and online and have a good selection of scarves. Being self-employed has given me independence and freedom to be who I am, and it brings me joy to be out there doing what I love.

By purchasing from B Collective, you are supporting The Millin Charity to continue helping women like me to realise their dreams and gain financial independence. Thank you so much for your support.”
