Meet Ma Nwet Nwet San
Ma Nwet Nwet San lives in Hlaing Thayar Township in Yangon and has a hearing impairment. She has several years experience working as a tailor, but she faced a hard time finding a job due to the environmental, institutional, and attitudinal barriers she faced.
Early 2018 she met with Job Placement Coach (JPC) Ma Myint Myint Htike. Ma Nwet Nwet San explained her employment preferences and the JPC met with several potential employers to negotiate possibilities for work.
As a result, Ma Nwet Nwet San had the chance to meet with an employer and she started her new job in July 2018. Now she has a steady income of about 3,000 kyats per day, which has really contributed to the wellbeing of her family. Ma Nwet Nwet San says she is very happy!
