It's not easy to start your own business, especially when you're from the projects. This week we meet Moussa, who created an association aimed at helping youth from the French suburbs create their own companies. Among them are Emmanuel and Seiba, two successful new business owners. They tell us their stories.

Banlieue Project is a platform for residents of France's disadvantaged suburbs to tell their own stories. We provide the camera and they film their experiences to break down clichés about the French "banlieues".
