Mauritania: Local Microcredit Project Trains Youths

A new programme to train young Mauritanians on the use of microcredit kicked off in Atar, Adrar region, last Monday (December 17th).

According to the organisers, the training will also cover "tailoring, dyeing, the teaching of English and Spanish, hygiene, receiving visitors, and management".

The three-month-long programme was organised in partnership with the United Nations Population Fund.

Adrar wali Diallo Oumar Amadou used the event to stress "the importance of this training in stimulating development at the national level by producing young people with skills which match the demands of the labour market".
