Mo Myint Zu, 32 years old, joined FXB in 2002 as an apprentice. She followed the organization’s”Vocational Training program”, from level 1-4, during 3 years, to become professionally trained in weaving.

After her training in 2005, she decided to go back to University and follow a distance learning course to improve her knowledge while continuing to work for FXB as an employee. While the Vocational Training Center offers students the opportunity to join any workshop in Myanmar, the center also offers those who want to, or those who are struggling, the oportunity to work and make products to be sold by FXB in its showroom based in Yangon.

After her graduation, Mo Myint Zu opened her own business during the weekend. This allowed her to provide for his family and help her sick mother, while investing in her future career. Grateful and proud of her career, she decided to go even further by participating in the “FXB Mobile Program” to share her knowledge with other participants in poor villages. “Since FXB changed my life, I want to in turn help others improve their life.”
