Amélie was born in a small village in the south of Cote d'Ivoire, Djibridou. At the time, it was rare to school girls there and she was no exception. Amélie, who wanted to become an executive secretary, found herself, at a very young age, then a domestic worker in Abidjan. A little later she met the man who would become the father of her 7 children. When her husband died, she decided to return to her native village to cultivate the land. Despite the rheumatism she suffers from and the hardship of work, Amélie, determined to build a family home, refrains from giving up.
She is seeking Seekewa's help to grow maize on the ½ ha of land she owns.
With this harvest, she hopes to generate enough profits to help her children and complete the construction of their house.
