All-women car repair shop opens in Senegal

Sisters and business partners from capital Dakar fight stereotypes in a country where women are expected to stay home.

Two women have opened what is thought to be Senegal’s first car repair shop run entirely by women.

Sisters and entrepreneurs Fatou Silly and Fatou Camara believe that fighting stereotypes is good for business.

In a country where women are traditionally expected to bear children, few are encouraged to work let alone start their own business.
