Kokoè's story

Selling rice in front of her house, Kokoè is a 32-year-old married mother of two children, who are both in school. To bolster her business selling rice, she has inquired with WAGES for a loan. With this sum, she is going to purchase some supplies (tomatoes, rice, vegetable oil) for making rice. Kokoè would like to expand her business and have a restaurant later on. She would like to see her children thrive.
