Firm helps the disabled to set up businesses

Ms Wendy Tay, 37, who is deaf, was earning $1,500 a month working in a bakery. That was until October last year. Now, she makes only a third of that every month. But this is not the story of a person’s loss, but gain. While she earns less, she now owns and runs a cleaning business, in which she finds more dignity and fulfillment.”
