Burkina Faso – Thomas Sankara’s women

Bernadette Zongo, 48 years old, and her 7 children, are the beneficiaries of a microcredit project. In the two years of activity of the warrantage programme she has received two credits of 50,000 African francs (around 88 USD), used to purchase a dozen goats and rams to breed and resell. “My life has changed a lot. In the past, I only thought about myself, but ever since I began to be better, I understood that I wanted to share my experience with other women and I founded a small association to help others pursue a path of independence.”
