RNI empowering the poor through small business start up and support services
Micro finance and small business support in Africa
In a courageous and desperate attempt to escape biting poverty in West Africa, Nourou who is slightly handicapped, travelled by road to Congo in search of a better life. However, success proved elusive.After going through unimaginable suffering, pain and disappointment, he was forced to bite the bullet and return to Senegal completely disillusioned. Now with a wife and 3 kids, he exists on the fringes of Senegalese society barely managing to eke out a meagre existence hawking handcrafted beads on the streets. Nourou, his wife and 3 children, live in a tiny room with a mat and small mattress.
