Flavia's story

Flavia is a thirty-six-year-old single mother with one child who is in school.

She has been selling clothes for two years and she also farms maize and beans as an additional economic activity.

Flavia is faced with a challenge of low sales since clothes are seasonal. She is, however, grateful to Hofokam for the good services rendered which have helped her meet her family's needs despite being single.

She hopes to become rich and wants money to buy clothes to sell.
