Maimouna's story

Maimouna lives in the south of Senegal. She is 49 years old and married. For the past two years she has been active in the retail trade of clothing.

Her workday extends from 7:30 am to 8:00 pm. This activity generated profits with which she bought a plot of land in her locality.

Maimouna's ambition is to build a house on her plot of land - which is located in a tourist area - so she can lease it.
