Souadou's story

Souadou lives in the south of Senegal and is 35 years old. She got married when she was 25 years old and has no children to date. She buys vegetables in Dakar. For the past fifteen years she has been trading in order to support her mother and pay for her own medical appointments, since she is still thinking of having children during her life.

Thanks to her business Souadou has bought a piece of land in Brin and wants to build on it in the future.
