Ousmane BÉRÉ, 29 years, left school at 3rd standard. He joined the welding workshop of his dad, where he conceived a motorised plough.
 
In his workshop, Ousmane makes carts, animal-drawn ploughs, wheelbarrows, doors, windows, and other tools. But his innovation is the motorised plough, that does not need to be pulled by a cattle or a donkey.
 
“Everyone has to fight. Those who sleep are losers. I spend my nights to draw, to conceive new things. The advice that I have for the youths is that you really have to fight,” says, Ousmane.
