Abou Hamidou
Abou Hamidou, 38, is a young merchant who sells various items. In his little store, he has a bit of everything: foodstuffs, cosmetics, and whatever can be sold at a profit.

He is married and has seven children who are still young. The oldest is 11 and the youngest 6 months old. This means that he has a lot of expenses to cope with as none of his children is grown-up.

He has a dream which is his only preoccupation right now: to build a house and settle his family in it.
