The Dakar Suburb III project was terminated at the end of 2009, with activities aiming at the intensification of micro-financing and income generating activities for young people and especially women in Baraka, a slum dwelling in Dakar. About 500 inhabitants benefitted from micro-credits and training opportunities, enabling them to open their small businesses such as market stalls, street hawkers or hair dressers.
