« Moumna does business on the riverbanks between Senegal and Mauritania. She is married but also wants her independence. Everything she knows, she has learned by herself. At the border, her profits often end up going towards bribes that she pays to customs officers. But Moumna dreams of setting up a fabric business that will take off in Morocco and the Middle East.
