COME, I’LL SHOW YOU

HOW DREAMS HELP AGAINST RESTRICTIONS

Anyone who sees Mariama Sonko will probably first notice her physical disability. This is nothing new for the 29-year-old Gambian. She has long been used to it. But anyone who talks to her will quickly notice how much joie de vivre and concentrated energy are in her small body. As the eldest daughter, Mariama runs a small shop and thus provides for her family. And she still has a lot of plans: She wants to become a successful businesswoman and build up a large warehouse. Even if the Corona crisis now puts a huge spanner in the works of her business – Mariama is determined to turn her dreams into reality, no matter how difficult it will be.

It stretches along the Gambia River of the same name and is almost completely surrounded by the state of Senegal. The capital is Banjul. More than half of the people live in the metropolitan area of the larger cities. The official language is English, but more than 20 other languages are spoken.
