Meet Miriamou Yaya

The beautiful makeup bags and purses that Breaking Ground is starting to sell were designed and made by Miriamou.  A graduate of our Women's Entrepreneurial Program, Miriamou is a 28 year old Fulani woman and mother of five. A vivacious and generous woman, as well as a fabulous cook, Miriamou is the social hub of the Tongo Pastoral quarter. Though she is rarely allowed to leave the house, the world comes to her kitchen.

Miriamou currently earns money for her family by completing small sewing projects from home.  In the future, she hopes to expand her sewing business and start selling pagne (the distinctive cloth used for Cameronian clothing and Breaking Ground bags) in her quarter.
