Aminata is 40 years old, married and the mother of 5 children. She sells fabric and food (in a mini-restaurant). She starts her workday at half past seven in the morning and finishes it at one o'clock in the afternoon. She is able to take care of her children thanks to the income from her business. As her number of customers is increasing, she plans to increase her restaurant space and to diversify her products and services (including offering them at night).
