Masika Group's story
Désanges started selling food supplies in 2010, after feeling the weight of being responsible for supporting members of her family alone after her husband left. Now, with financial support from Paidek, she is able to get by because this business enables her to take care of her whole family. However, she complains about the fact that the place she gets her stock from is very far away. Désanges is the woman wearing the long-sleeved dress.
