Siriki OUATTARA, 40 years, left school in 3rd standard to venture into agriculture with 2 ha.
Today, he cultivates over 100 ha.
 
While most people leave the village to go to the city, Siriki did the opposite. He left the city to go to the village, where he got into agricultural production. Apart from vegetable and cereal production, Siriki also rears cattle. He has over 30 permanent employees working in his farm.
 
“These days, we cannot sit and count on someone. You have to fight. You have to work seriously. It’s like this that we’ll be able to move forward,” says Siriki.
