She has a passion for equality and ensuring women in rural areas are financially independent by helping them build thriving sustainable businesses. Aminata is a visionary leader that has clear and smart objectives she wants to achieve.
Transition into Entrepreneurship
From an early age, Aminata has been keen on improving her community. With a background in marketing and management, she transitioned into entrepreneurship while studying at university. She founded her business L’Africaine to encourage people to buy locally-produced beauty products.
Aminata founded L’Africaine in 2021. L’Africaine is an online shop that sells locally-produced skin and hair products. The products are created by women in rural communities and then refined and sold on the company’s website. Aminata hopes that L’Africaine will be a point of reference for other businesses who choose to promote and sell locally crafted goods.
