When I told my family I would like to join KOCO, they gave me their full support. I feel so happy. The ladies are very supportive and caring to help me learn knitting.

Before I was working, I was a house wife and we used only my husband’s earnings. Now we are able to pay my children’s school fees for private school education. We can always pay our fees on time.

I feel very active because I wake up early, plan my house work so I can come to work on time. I’m learning so much, like how to work as part of a team and get our garments done.

I love working with different colours of yarns, doing multi-colour work. When I’m knitting I forget any worries in my mind. I am relaxed.

It is my dream to go on a big holiday with my family.
