Rukija Bakari

Rukija Bakari has been working on the Afrikable project for almost 2 years. She works as a seamstress in the textile group, Jimudu. Before, she earned her money going from house to house offering her services as a cleaner or cook. Sometimes she found work, sometimes she didn't She has 6 children, and when her husband abandoned her, she had to face educating and feeding all her children alone. She barely managed to send her oldest son to secondary school, but the two younger school-aged children were not in school. Now the two youngest are ready to go to into primary education next year, and the three oldest are already at secondary school.

“I love my work; knowing that I’ll have a salary every month helps me to plan my expenses. Now in the shops, they trust me. I can borrow money because they know that at the end of the month, I will pay them. In the future, I would like to start some sort of business to complement my salary. With such a large family, it is difficult to save. I have not yet succeeded.”
