The current client base ratio consists of two thirds Teens/Adults and one third of client aged 5-12(Kids).  The youngest client recorded to learn to sew with the I Love Sewing® Curriculum was 5 years old at the time of attending sewing classes.  Clients are represented from all spheres of the population and mainly are female, ranging from being illiterate to professional individuals.  SSA all inclusive business model with various income streams are the only of its’ kind in the South African market.
