I decided to return to Senegal after realizing that my dream for a better future could not be achieved in Europe.

With the training I took in Italy, I was able to re-establish the retail and repair business I had started before leaving Senegal. Once back home, I was mentored by very active and experienced people.

I am not alone: I supervise four apprentices, while others work as repairers. They fix the material that I, as the business owner, buy for this purpose. This journey provided me with experience and courage. It taught me that determination and hard work always give results.

I also have a family now: a wife and a daughter. I don’t regret my decision to come back.
