Broguhe--Hortense Gogua, 2010

Hortense is Chief Léon's fourth wife. She has established a small sewing room, where she teaches young women how to make clothes for themselves and for sale at the market. However, because there is no light (and yet there is an electric pole nearby), Hortense can only teach during the day. Also, she has only a single, treadle-powered machine, and young and older women are forced to travel to Daloa, which is 30 Km away because it is always in use.

Listen to Hortense explain her situation in her own words....
