Edwige Kankouan finished her Licence degree in marketing at an institute in Koudougou, and applied to do a Master’s in Ouagadougou. But in the end she decided to return to her old school. We redid her budget. (Day 10 and Day 11.)



She is a serious student and finished her first year Master’s study with good grades. She is starting her second and last year.


Edwige is in her third and last year of a Licence in marketing. She wants a Master’s in same, and is intrigued by McGill University’s interest in sub-Saharan African women. But she will settle for Ouagadougou University’s Institut Africain de Management.


Her father is retired with a pension; her mother retires this year but without a pension because she worked for less than the minimum wage. I chatted with Edwige and her Dad.


She’d arranged a meeting for us with a member of the administration, but he doesn’t have much to tell us. There are no grades yet. He does give us a brochure outlining the infinite number of job possibilities for a Marketing major.
