Luckily for him, his grandparents cared for him and at the age of twenty-three, he decided to kiss the seam: “All I have to do in my life, I do it with my feet ; Cut the fabrics, take measurements and sew “. His training was difficult at first because many tailors thought he could not sew the clothes because of his disability. However, his determination has borne fruit.
