Setou Coulibaly is 40 years old. She has 6 children, 4 boys and 2 girls. She has been a widow for one year.
Setou started cultivation activities in a market garden site built by World Vision 5 years ago. "I cultivate tomatoes, cucumbers, celery, okra and mint that I use in the kitchen for my family and I also sell a portion at the weekly fair.", says Setou. The sale of condiments during a 6-month cycle can bring her between 40,000 and 50,000 FCFA (~ 60 to 75 EUR) allowing her to pay the water fee, the purchase of supplies, snacks for the children at school and the family's health expenses.
The water conveyance has facilitated Setou's daily life, allowing her to devote the time she used to draw water by hand to other activities.
