Kadidja's story

Kadidia is a dynamic young woman of 33 years old who likes trading. She is married to a technician and has two children in her care. She has devoted herself to this business (the sale of beauty products, pieces of highly colourful fabric known as "pagnes" and hair extensions) since 2000. She sells to all sorts of people, gets her supplies in Lomé and Cotonou (the economic capital of Benin) and resells them in her shop in Djidolé.
