Old jeans provide a lifeline for single mothers

Kamal Ariffin

MOST people would not think twice about throwing out their old jeans, yet such cast-offs have become a lifeline for a group of single mothers in dire need of income.

What started out as a project to recycle used denim has not only flourished as a business but also as a social enterprise.

Suri Inspirasi Sdn Bhd, now two years old, rakes in a profit of between RM15,000 and RM20,000 a month. Its products are sold at its kiosk in KLCC and online at its website 2ndchance.my and Instagram account.

The company has caught the eye of various agencies, as well as the government, which has lent it financial aid. The funds are used to hold free sewing classes for single mothers. – Septermber 24, 2018.
