I help support eight family members under my roof and I have all learned to manage time well because I need to wake early in the morning to get all the household work done.

I am very happy to handknit at KOCO here because I forget all my personal problems and get to interact with other ladies. We support each other.

I have four children - two in school and two in college. I finished school at age 15. I am happy my children have longer education than me.

Learning new things about knitting every day and understanding more English is something I look forward to daily. Before working at KOCO I earned some money gardening from time to time.

If I met someone wearing something handknitted by me I would say, ‘I am very happy when I knit this, what about you? Are you feeling happy to wear this?’
