Sabina is one of very few female carpenters in Nairobi working through Lynk, an on-demand labor platform. She initially faced stigma from the male carpenters and customers who didn’t think she could deliver to the standard they expected. She had to prove she had a right to be there. Drawing on her inner grit, Sabina earned the respect of her colleagues, actively fighting gender norms along the way.
