Former Vice President & Minister of Women – The Gambia – Fatoumatta Jallow-Tambajang

Access to finance through micro-financing has been another important enabler.

    It is always a great pleasure to hear my aunty (Toma) speaking.
    She is my role model and a mentor. With her endless efforts and expertise, The Gambia was able to be free from the inhuman ruling that the lovely country went through for 22 years!!
    God bless you always.
    Love you dear.
