My name is Ousmane Ly. I live in the Baraka neighborhood in Liberté extension 6, in the district Sicap Liberté of Dakar, Senegal. I work in real estate Keur massar as sales manager and my company is called Kawsara Group Corporation. We emphasize in the sale and purchase of land, the exploitation of salt, earthworks, markers, and money transfer services. A support program has been created since 2012 « One Family One Roof » which should enable everyone to have access to real estate.
I was selected as a blogger for Baraka and I’m training with Dieynaba Ba and Aissatou Sow for two weeks. Our trainer is called Katharina, she comes from Europe in Germany and is one of the best bloggers in the world. That’s why it is a great chance for me to be selected. After this training we will not only be the first students, but we will also become the first and best bloggers of Senegal and even Africa. But all of it is due to our friend and brother Ibrahima Sadio, who helps us to understand well the translation of English into French. He is really modest and available. Our major ambition is to be able to participate in this great project symbolically as the fact that our current President has spared many efforts to facilitate the project’s success through its Urban Renewal Minister of Housing Mr. Diène Farba Sarr.
