About Me

Moussa Sanou was born in 1953 in Bobo-Dioulasso as the son of a farmer and traditional doctor. He has been initiated from an early age in the use of trees. Although his father was attached in the first place to the values of nature he accepted to send his son to school. Moussa Sanou has thus studied until the 5th class of secondary school. Following the death of his father, he was obliged to quit school at once but he continued to discover the forest, together with his uncle. He was very ambitious to earn a living and he tried several jobs. That is why he passed through the GENICA to work as a lab assistant at the institute for veterinary science and why he worked at the Red Cross from 1979 till 1999.

The urge to care for patients with the help of plants will lead him to an old man with an exceptional knowledge about therapeutic herbs. When he left the old man he had improved his knowledge a lot, which allowed him to become independent in this domain. He hasn't taken a lot of time to proof his knowledge: he treated a lady from Benin which payed him the trust of her husband who has been teaching him a lot more secrets about herbs.
From one success to another he gained his excellent reputation also outside of Bobo-Dioulasso and even over the national borders. He became part of the group of the best traditional healers and he followed several trainings to still improve his medical forces.

These proofs will quickly convince the actors in the region and he is elected the president of the association of traditional healers in Houet (ATTPH) "La sagesse" (The wisdom) in 2002.
His motivation and his wisdom have allowed him to choose a new direction for this sector in the Houet-region. A small forest has been created in Léguema, with the support of Mr. Olivier Marc and the Ministry of Environment. The participation of the association in several exhibitions and fairs has been awarded several Prices and Certificates. Moussa Sanou is a very popular traditional healer and he works with the help of three youngsters to assure his succession.

In orde to assure that his wisdom will serve humanity in the future, Moussa Sanou would like to build a laboratory and write a book with all the recipes for therapeutic herbs. The president of the ATTPH does his best to provide irrigation in the forest to create better conditions for certain plants which will treat other illnesses. We can say that Moussa Sanou is a specialist in: pediatrics, cure of haemorrhoids, malaria, sexual weakness, diabetes and several others.

My Business

The enterprise I have created is located in the neighborhood called Djaradougou, next to the Centre Muraz and not far from the big mosque. We provide traditional health cures. Our aim is to promote health for everyone through the use of therapeutic herbs, to cure certain serious illnesses that haven't found a solution yet in conventional medicine, to help those patients who don't have the means to pay for care by modern medicine.
My health center receives around fifty patients every day. The influx of people asking for our services is due to our competences, the quality and the low cost of the care provided. The social character of our services for the population allows us to create a difference.
It is my ambition to enlarge the enterprise through the creation of several production and selling units for traditional medicines in each neighborhood of the city and each capital of the province. In this way I hope to secure our achievements and to stay ahead of my competitors in the sector.
In general we have a monthly income of 1 million 2 hundred thousand (1200000) Francs CFA representing the turnover of the business.

Loan Proposal
