Testimony of Dabourgou, a member of the Feminin Pouguimani group of Dagarou, and beneficiary of the multifunctional platform. As the only man in this group, he has been of considerable support to women in carrying out their activities.

Now that the multifunctional platform has been implanted, he gives us his opinion on the results and impacts of this installation.

What do you think of this investment?

Simply fantastic because, a long time ago, the village felt almost forgotten but, with this platform, the population begins to believe in the development of the area.

Concretely what did this platform bring you?

Before this implantation, women pounded the millet with mortars until obtaining the flour. This was very tedious especially during winter with the work field. Some traveled 5 to 8km to grind their millet. Today, this concern is resolved.
This implementation has made the village more visible with the creation of a market that has become a real crossroad of income-generating activities, especially for women. Finally, thanks to the platform, we now charge our cell phones, our batteries and we even do some repairs in metal welding at home.

Do you meet any management difficulties?

At the beginning, we had small technical difficulties that we manage to overcome with the support of Mr. Somda (project leader). Otherwise we have no financial difficulty, on the contrary, this platform makes money that goes to the group account.

What are your perspectives?

Properly maintain our platform so that it can be renewed. We intend to produce lighting for our children who wish to study, but the question of diesel is raised.
