Madame Hawa est une brave femme âgée de 48ans qui évolue dans la vente de bétail de plus de 5ans. Elle est mariée et mère de 4 enfants qui ont entre 22ans et 18ans. Au début elle vendait du lait caillé pour subvenir aux charges familiales et scolaires. Maintenant elle a besoin de crédit pour acheter plus de bétail et les revendre.
