The products cultivated are: rice, groundnut (by MINIGNA K.), millet and maize.

After the harvest the goods are sold in the village and at KADIOLO and ZEGOUA markets to a clientele of men and women. She hopes to make an average profit of 85.500 FCFA after cultivation, which will be used to support school fees for the children and health care costs for the family.
