Victoria comes from Burundi; “I spent a year at a refugee camp before I was granted residency in Tanzania”, she then immigrated to Australia with her husband and child.
Victoria makes and sells her jewellery; “I am really pleased to have been developing skills and learning more about small business here in Australia. In Tanzania there is no such thing as Centrelink, so I have always had the mindset that I need to find a way to sustain my own living. So I taught myself how to make jewellery. I can’t grow food here, I have to buy it, so I needed to find a way to pay for food”.
It was her mother-in-law that introduced her to SisterWorks, which has enabled her to connect with many other women, to form friendships and establish a network of support.
Her jewellery range is available through SisterWorks at our pop-up market stalls and our Richmond and South Yarra stores.
