In Burkina Faso, Aïcha Traoré wants to replace plastic bags with paper bags.
Aïcha saw how the use of plastic bags was becoming harmful to the environment. And she wanted to do something about it. Without any training, she learnt by herself to make paper bags. Today she has a business that works.
“In 2017, we have made more than 58,000 bags. I believe that 2018 will exceed 2017,” says Aïcha.
