About Me

I have two wives, four children, and two nephews. I also took in two orphans, a boy and a girl. I live in TAKALEDOUGOU, a village located 15km from Banfora and 75km from Bobo Dioulasso. I like agriculture and raising cattle. I completed elementary school in Takaledougou and then Middle and High School in Banfora. I have a High School degree. I studied English with TARGET INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE. I received training to be a language tutor with the USA Peace Corps.

My Business

I produce and process manioc (Garri and Attieke). I cultivate manioc, process it, and use the residue to raise cattle such as pigs, goats, and sheep. I am currently producing very little so as to provide for the population and SNSOSUCO workers. Because of the quality of my product, I am considering large scale production to supply certain areas of Burkina and also Mali thanks to loyal customers of Dédougou. This project will help all manioc producers as well as cattle farmers. It will contribute to creating employment for some people from the village and will help fight against poverty and starvation. This center will also allow training producers and manioc processors. It will be profitable because the raw material is provided and processed by itself. The residue is also used for cattle-raising. The only difficulty is the mortality of the cattle. The required sum is 1.750.000fcfa for the purchase of an engine to mash the manioc, a press, and two sifters.
The unit’s revenue is estimated to a minimum of 150.000fcfa a month without taking into consideration the sale of the cattle and their waste.

Loan Proposal

Every time I’m thinking about my project and I found that it is better to create another job by the grace of the first with is cassava transformation. I got ideas. I can realize all these small projects after building one compound for my cassava activities. I need now for one place for my cassava job because I get many problems with animals. Cows, sheep, chicken, pigs like very well cassava residues. Every time when we are working, they come to eat these residues. It is a big problem to me to put their away all the time. All the night my house is full of animals.
I receive many persons for a visit but the only idea that they give me is to look for one place for my job and they are sure that the job will go on well. I need for this loan only to build two houses. The first will be a kitchen and the second will be use to put my product `attieke’ in sachet. In from of these two houses I will make one shed where we will stay to take away the wasps of cassava.

About Me

J’ai deux femmes, quatre enfants, deux neveux. J’héberge aussi deux orphelins un garçon et une fille. Je réside à TAKALEDOUGOU, village situe à 15km de Banfora et 75 de Bobo Dioulasso. J’aime l’agriculture et l’élevage. J’ai fait mes études primaires à Takaledougou puis mes études secondaires à Banfora. J’ai un niveau terminal. J’ai étudié l’anglais avec TARGUET INTRENATINAL LANGUAGE. J’ai reçu une formation de tuteur de langue avec Peace corps des Etats Unis D’Amérique.

My Business

.J’exerce une fonction de production et de transformation de manioc ( Attieké et en Garri) Je cultive le manioc, je le transforme et j’utilise les résidus pour élever les animaux tel que les porcs, les chèvres et moutons. Je fais présentement une production très faible qui sert à ravitailler ma population et les travailleurs de la SNSOSUCO. Compte tenue de la qualité de mon produit, j’envisage une très grande production pour servir certaines localités du BURKINA et aussi du Mali grâce à des clients fideles de Dédougou. Ce projet aidera tous les producteurs de manioc et également les éleveurs. Il contribuera à créer de l’emploi à certaines personnes du village et luttera contre la pauvreté et la famine. Ce centre permettra également à former les producteurs et transformateurs de manioc. Ce projet est rentables car ses matières premières sont fournis et transformés par elle-même. Les résidus sont aussi utilisés pour l’élevage des animaux. La seule difficulté rencontrée est la mortalité des animaux. La somme sollicitée est de : 1.750.000fcfa pour l’achat d’un moteur pour écraser le manioc une presse et deux tamis. En ce qui concerne les revenus de l’unité, il est estime minimum a 150.000fcfa chaque mois sans compter la vente des animaux et leurs déchets.
