Koku is just one of the many people we have supported to become successfully self-employed. Koku had been unemployed for more than three years when he reached out for self-employment help. Within just two months of working with us he had completed his business plan with the support of his Business Mentor, Muhammed, and was ready to trade! He opened his ethical recruitment business in March 2022.
Talking about the service Koku said: “Thank you so much for the support, I am thrilled to start my business and have been blessed to have such a fantastic Mentor in Muhammed. He is direct, professional and business-like, while being compassionate but firm and I look forward to his continued professional guidance as I progress onwards. Thank you again for your fantastic support!”
