Thierno
Mr. Thierno is 72 years old and still active despite his age. He is the father of a large family as it is polygamous, which is why he works from 9am to 6pm everyday. He has done business for over 20 years selling fabric. He has a little store in the market, which is less tiring since it does not move.

Thierno handles the daily expenses, supported by his son, who is starting to take care of things little by little. His dearest wish is to ensure that his descendants have a decent life and freedom from want. That's why he ensures that each child could have a proper business that can generate income and take of their needs without depending on others.
