After a peaceful childhood spent in the Guitry region, Fatoumata found herself after her marriage in Datta, with the ambition to succeed in the fresh fish trade. For lack of means, she had to devote herself to selling red oil at the auction. Then 15 years ago, she decided to create bean and cassava fields to diversify her income in the secret hope of having the resources to create her fish shop.
She wants the support of supporters to create a new field of ½ hectare of rice that is a popular crop in her area.
Through this project, Fatoumata hopes to have enough resources to open her fish market and start building a small house because she says "all this is for the children. For those of us who have not had the chance to go to school, offering our offspring a better future than ours is the goal of our life".
