Burkina Faso – Thomas Sankara’s women

Traore Zoenabo, 38, has 4 children, the youngest of which is just a few months old. She is the treasurer of the onion conservation warehouse of Loumbilà. Thanks to the harvest, together with her husband she has been able to buy a larger piece of land, and has thereby increased domestic production: “Now I have a cart I attach to the donkey in order to go to the fields, this way I don’t need to walk more than an hour, and I have a solar plate to recharge a battery. In the past, when I got back from work, I had to turn on the battery as well as the candles; now I am able to recharge my mobile and I feel like a modern woman.”
