7:36 am
we use the means by the certification. case here. from the sky with this. over a wide range of the area and all of the village. houses so the moving. acacias are well suited to the task because they grow deep and extensive roots that bind sand and soil and help make it fur time again. electromechanical. device in the market. in many other regions of the world it would be easy to find the parts you need to build a drone but in sudan it's a huge challenge. anything in the vast ecology. nothing goes nothing comes must and it's. so.
7:37 am

7:40 am
a known concept and was not one that was a tall encouraged so culturally. being entrepreneurial is not part of the sudanese culture no mother you know would tell her son or daughter all daughter i want you to go and start the for a company and fail to never it's like study be a doctor be a lawyer be an engineer if you fail in all these all day what can we do then maybe you can go and start. at the beginning it was unclear if anybody would be interested in a show like mash arroyo. but really from missouri one it was amazing because not only what about it was 5000 participants but 5000 applicants in missionary one but then the engagement once it started to go live on t.v. and on social media you know every one from that person's area or really and would be watching and vote. and they got so engaged it really was the wildest losing

7:43 am
of support for startups mass drawing tries to fill the gap it offers candidates workshops on issues such as funding planning and marketing. she's thinking about the cheney was a small farmers are in town. so doing this cause farm and most of them they don't know the technology and they don't have t.v. so what she thought about we thought about you know the radio will be one of the towns that we can use him to reach them. the question is if you understand your customer who does the farmer frost before work because people who are already part of fertilizer from. the can you identify the people who are already vying for those who are from. and if you convince them they will soldier the farmer on your behalf the people attending the workshops here much more passionate the really want to look. very enthusiastic a lot of questions they want to talk about it
7:44 am
a lot and i compare it to the marcus fund and they want to treat it as much water as possible. from yours to. the candidates might be very keen but few have any background in economics on management. i thought that a boom i'm going to make my project and we have been there the body goes back and back but i. was shocked with a lot of numbers and procedures business plans and goals and whatever those days shocking i learned a lot actually like the market in i never heard the word i mean i never read it before i internet was roy. so that was. a really big good benefit for the exchange student my life actually i'm a doctor i have nothing to lose business but when i take. lectures there used to be clear i know how to put my my plan my business done i know how i do with my budget
7:45 am
i know how to track. the addition of interest is. measurable is not only about supporting entrepreneurship it also focuses on responsibility and making a positive contribution to society. through the traditional way of the west giving the gift to africa saying here's some money go and do it is not sustainable if there is one so money runs out the project stops or there is exhaustion from the west people who are fed up of giving money to africa we needed to teach the africans to look after themselves. we're now near the white nile and the south of sudan a world away from khartoum. some are al

gardy was the winner of the 1st season of mash a lawyer in early 2014. it's not normal for at nearly $82.00 together to come into this area is that since cain no i'm not saying it's a business now it's become for me as a venture the end of a massive area that's all it's happening and i couldn't see any babies around so. i'm the only credited you is moving around. gandhi normally works in vocational training for women in khartoum but when she heard about a plague of water hyacinths on the nile she decided to try to do something about it . he knew that. if. well the very interesting because that's why we were in the book and i thought that

they have to go under the water are difficult. i'm really appreciate the good they're doing fine but. i have since were introduced to saddam in the 19th century as an ornamental pool plant they have since become an uncontrollable past. these what i think is spread like a thunder and it's growing very fast you can imagine that in one week this plant would multiply the 25 it's looking very good so says team spirit and it was going to move freely and even though the fisherman cannot easily catch fish it's a good environment for mosquitoes are part of sides who is living inside the woods oh yeah it's kind of a nightmare for the people the. attempts to cut down the spread of water hyacinth so far failed even weed killers were simply absorbed by the plant.
7:48 am
some oligarchy had the idea of using them as a free resource to make decorative items back some small pieces of furniture out of their stems. i think this is the unique about my business that you don't need that has kind of prize ecology and it can be very sensible forces can come to life so that. you can see that i'm using such kind of a normal kind of tools you have to go for a kind of false advance for example in schools i'm just using a scissors and i want to spray out and you know even if you don't haave then you can just spray with your hand so kind of easy way of these especially for people who doesn't have a few is kept out of sight of business. for now or she makes the items herself at home in her free time.
7:49 am
gandhi who sells her products on the internet and at a small shop. played here some of the new things that made it they should be on display here. i'm king as can we make some space for them i can set them up for you to come out of. a quarter of the contestants on mash or on our women and that mark something of a revolution in sudan just a few years ago young women were still expected to marry and raise a family going to college or setting up
7:50 am
a business was practically unheard of measure oir is contributing to a change in social norms and the advancement of women. we are living now in a kind of condition that we need the cooperation between we as women and the main for the bitterness any woman. who was oh yeah i guess ladies now and women now are very aware of their rights they are looking forward to the kids what they want from the life you can see us part of so the news is we man and we are proud of that actually. many women have reached out to the t.v. contest winner to tell her she has been a source of inspiration among them a young woman who wanted to drop out of school. after he was initially are she wants my journey during that time she decided that i'd have to go for those higher education she won't even google for the for how much 3rd degree she went to all the
7:51 am
all the problem on the list of those that he faced with me i think the out there will again is how growing further and how did you creation and they were allowed to give her a range of areas where high before my cousin or someone. while national i may have opens new horizons turning a vision into reality remains a challenge the team and mohammed to been trying for months to get a permit to deploy their drones even as the desert keeps advancing like here where trees have been planted as. part of the great green wall project. big dream go lose a bottle by that so that if you get. strong every single point every single day.
7:52 am
another problem for the team and mohamed is failing to find an investor to back their project despite their trial for national oil in saddam startups can't get funding either from the government or from banks. the 2 want to keep trying. sometimes we feel like we have to give up to. be a lot of them all. but when we when we saw those people. we are fight for and was somebody i was facing. face to face. or they are in the fault line every day there's investigation that motivate us we have to think that you don't do. guard he has not been able to expand her business either due to the still fragile state of a sudanese economy. many factors were just up to operate due to the sanctions we
