Meet Munir from Pakistan

May 28, 2018

Munir is from Lahor, Pakistan. As did Hayder, he began apprenticing at a tailor's shop at the age of 12. He apprenticed for three years before working full-time starting at the age of 15. 

 

He has been married for five years. Soon after he married, he and his wife had to flee to Sri Lanka where they spent four years and three months. During this lengthy period of transition, Munir and his wife had a lovely daughter who is now three years old. They have only been in the United States since mid-spring 2018. Munir hasn't been in the US long enough to really get a grasp of what he likes and dislikes but he has identified one thing he is especially fond of--big shopping malls like the Galleria in Houston!

Munir is a truly excellent tailor who is independent and self-motivated. He is ready and wants to work hard. As of now, he has another job doing alterations and will contribute to Threads on the side. With that said, he has great potential and we are thrilled he is a member of our team. Now, it is up to us to sell enough so we can hire him full-time in the near future!

 

Never forget that your Threads purchases contribute directly to improving the lives of refugees like Munir.
