My name is Nabu, I’m 30, I am married and mother of a little boy of 18 months. When I returned to Mali in 2015 after leaving nearly 10 years in Europe, I refused to eat imported fruit and vegetable because I was seing vegetables rotting in Bamako markets. So, with my cook, Maya, we decided to take up the challenge of eating locally by making sauces, aromatic marinades and salad dressings that we used in our everyday cooking. That’s how Maya was born with the main objective of promoting local products and offering healthy and innovative cooking aids to active women like me to help them save time in cooking. I wanted to give the name of Maya to my company to pay homage to my cook Maya, who has never been to school, but is overflowing with ingenuity and is very advanced in the issues of “consuming local “and” fair trade “unlike many people. Maya is therefore the symbol of the generosity of the new African woman, curious and responsible and committed to a better Africa.
