I have always had a special interest in handicraft. When I joined KOCO I was a house wife. I heard about the handknitting work I thought it would be perfect for me to help my family with some earnings and be work I would enjoy.

What I did not expect was the change working here has made to my family’s financial status and my confidence.

Before joining here I was very quiet. The family environment at KOCO makes me feel happy. I am enjoying learning lots of new stitches and doing new work. Everyone is proud to support each other and build our skills so that our company can grow. I am learning to read and understand the patterns. If I am stuck there is always someone to help. Learning to speak up to get help with my work has given me confidence to communicate.

My family can now manage all our expenses like school fees, fruits and vegetables, clothing and saving to build a new house.
