Lena Tall Faye

Lena Tall Faye is the eldest of 8 siblings, and while she originally wished to attend University, instead took a job at a bank to help support her family. However, after witnessing waves of layoffs, she decided to start her own business, Delta SA. Her entrepreneurial spirit was awakened, and bit by bit, she expanded the company. 

Delta SA is now a leading actor for sustainable sanitation development in Senegal and focused on the preservation of a healthy environment. Tall Faye continues to run the company as CEO and is a strong advocate for women in the sanitation industry.

Delta is the initiative of a woman who believes in her potential, who thought that it would be possible, and who has always believed in her independence.
