The Covid emergency with the subsequent lockdowns had a terrible impact on the economy in Burkina Faso as everywhere in Africa: this is even more true in the area of Dodougou. Closing down the markets led to a stop of the little commerces that kept the families alive; moreover, the unrest and violences in other parts of the country, have been causing a massive internal migration toward the area of Dodougou village, that have been seeing his population increase with desperate families who arrived with nothing.
The women of the local groop "Wend-Songda" need the microcredit more than ever; now that the markets have reopened, they need to invest a little capital to grow sesame and vegetable to bring to the market and sell in the village. We are collecting every cent, keeping the funds bounded until we have enough to start the project.
We thank all our supporter, and keep them updated on any development in the project. Please, spread the word among family and friends!
