“My name is Zalissa, I am 24 years old and I am single. This job is my first job and my choice for life. Thanks to the support of CABES, I am now a professional weaver with a professional artisan card and a national certificate. The teamwork with Fatoumata Songnaaba allows us to produce faster and reduces the defects. Working on this order enabled me to contribute to my young brother’s school fees and to take care of my own needs. I am very happy to be part of this network and to produce for international brands”.
