Wendlateenda Ii Group's story

Hamsetou represents the Wendlateenda group. She is married and mother to one child, who is 27 years old. He does not go to school and she has one person to support. She has been selling corn flour as well as articles for women (lace and light "pagnes", which are colourful pieces of fabric) for the past four years. She gets her supplies of light "pagnes" and lace from Senegal and the corn from Ouaga. Her customers are men and women. She would like to buy eight sacks of corn to make flour and 10 sets of light "pagnes". She wants to expand her business with her profits and her ambition is to be able to travel to Senegal to get more goods, because she needs more money for her business.

In this group: Hamssetou, Alimata, Zourata
