Caroline HIEN, 25 years, did not know how to read or write. But this did not stop her from creating her own enterprise and succeed in her business of making local fruit jams.

Caroline used to go to the market in Cote d’Ivoire and see that fruits were rotting there. For her, this is not acceptable and it has motivated her to transform these fruits, make it a business and create jobs for others.
Today, through her enterprise “Carol’s Confiture – homemade”, Caroline has won the first prize of the Challenge “Startupper 2016” and is planning to expand her business.
