Cosalyn Woi's story

Cosalyn Woi is a 27 year old woman who has a partner who is a power plant operator. She lives with her partner in her own home which is located 6 kilometres out of Port Vila city. Her community is small, and the main industry is service. There is an international school located in her community including a day-care center for toddlers. As Cosalyn Woi's community has a lot of expats living there, making an income in her community has been tricky.

Seeing her business grow, Cosalyn Woi feels empowered to become a successful entrepreneur.
