The meeting with the young Fatou Codou, the only female mechanic of the Motos Pompes group in the city of Saint-Louis in Senegal, aroused in me a huge curiosity.

And by exploring her life as a woman and as a mechanic, I discovered that it is possible to have a different view of these women whose activities are still limited to certain areas. That the potential is actually in each of us, women and men alike.
