Burkina Faso – Thomas Sankara’s women

The warehouseman of the “warrantage warehouse” in Thyou. The warrantage is an instrument of microfinance which allows members of farm organisations to obtain loans, using their harvests as a guarantee. In this way, the price tends to go up. The two locks which lock the warehouse can only be opened by the farmer organisation and the bank which grants the loan. In exchange, the farmer has the right to a loan equal to around 75-80% of the value of the harvest which has been stored (the «stockage»).
