I used to work 12 hours a day as an attendant in a city company. I am a single mother and this lifestyle was very difficult on my family.

With the working hours at KOCO and my earnings I now feel secure financially, happy and healthy. I left school at the age of nine. It is very important to me that I can give my children the best education possible. I can also afford groceries and medical care for my family.

The best thing that has happened to me was something that made me feel an important person. My hub leaders showed their appreciation for my work and that was the best thing. Because of the support of the ladies I work with, I feel bold enough to face the world as a single woman.

If I could meet someone wearing a garment made by me I would love to take a photo with them.
