About Piko

Piko - Women in Tourism

"we survive"

Piko: We are benefitting because [the tourists] are buying our things.

Meghan: Do the tourists benefit as well?

Piko: Yes, they see the womens who are very strong. A strong womens, yes.

Meghan: Okay, so they learn from you, from the work that you do?

Piko: Yes. So no, we survive, yes. If they do not come, we can't survive. We're self-employed. Yes. We don't have a salary.

Meghan: So if the tourists didn't come anymore you wouldn't be able to sell anything?

Piko: Yes. I don't know how to call her, hunger, hunger, hunger.

If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
