Alassane's story

Mister Alassane is a 54 year old man who entered very quickly into business; it has been 24 years now. He is married and father to 21 children of whom the oldest is 27 years old and the youngest 1 year old. With the considerable number of his offspring, Alassane is obliged to work hard to feed his family. He is a baker by profession but this does not prevent him from selling various products in order to maximize his profit. In the photo we can see how he is active in his work and with such diligence as he loves his profession. He starts his day at 6am in the morning to finish at 7pm at night. He dreams of opening a large general food store and a modern bakery one day.
