Sinaou Group's story

A farmer by trade, Essodina is a father of four children, three of whom are at school. The youngest is 2 years of age, while the oldest is 12. His wife works in the same profession as he does.

Essodina started his business with four people in the Central Region 25 years ago. He buys his supplies in the same area, as well as in the surrounding villages. He wants to buy a means of transport and to build a house with the profits he makes and, in the future, would like to increase his land and provide for his family’s basic needs.

Essodina knows how to be responsible, and this is why his colleagues have chosen him as the president of the group called Sinaou. All the members of this group work in agriculture, growing yams, corn, cotton and rice. They have requested this loan from WAGES to buy work tools, so that they can have a good harvest and ensure that their families’ basic needs are met.

In this group: Essodina, Tchaa-Kouma, Essowé, Kpatcha, Kossi, Abra*
