PATIENCE is 39 years old and married to a long-distance taxi driver. She is the mother of 4 teenage girls all currently attending school. Her girls want to become nurses, and journalists so Pat works hard to assist their dreams. She sells water sachets and ice-cream and is sought after for her organisational skills and dedication. She is a mentor and leader in her community and church and is involved in both women’s discussion groups and church committees. Her own dream is to go into partnership with another dressmaker close to home allowing her the time for guidance necessary to assist her growing girls and her community commitments. A careful and determined dressmaker, Patience shines with her quiet, wise and caring spirit.
