And Book Diom Bou Ndiol Group
Sokhna helps her husband to provide for the day-to-day expenses of their household, and the school fees of their children. She starts her working day at 9am, stops between 1pm and 4pm, and then works in the fields again until 7pm.
In the future, she would like to extend the amount of land that she grows vegetables on, but in order to do this, she will need to continue using the support of the field partner. Further into the future, Sokhna would like to become a supplier of vegetables.
