Description : Khady's husband, Mamadou, disappeared in 2006 when he was 40 years old. He didn’t tell her anything about leaving, he just left without notice. She thought he was fishing. Relatives of the other people who left told her that her husband had left. She lives with 20 other people and has a small shop of cosmetics. She still has hopes he will come back one day. Despite this, she married again and says that if he comes back he will have to understand the situation. She has three children, one child with her new husband, who is also a fisherman. Khady thinks it is better to stay in Senegal than try to go to Europe.
