Saibou is a farmer who is helped by four people to carry out his professional duties. He has been working in the Central Region since 2011.

He is 41 years old, the father of five children, four of whom are in school. His wife is a homemaker.

The other members (of the group) are men and women who also work in the field of agriculture.

In this group: Saibou, Moustapha*, Bassirou, Idrissou, Zoulékénéni, Djouwera, Traoré
