Maazou MAIGA is an agronomist and government official. In parallel, he runs a cattle feed manufacturing unit.
In Fada N’Gourma, a town in the East of Burkina Faso, Maazou comes from a family involved in livestock breeding and trade. Since his childhood, he is used to help in the family business, notably by collecting cereal brans to feed the animals.
From his personal experience, he found that it was increasingly difficult to feed animals properly. After graduating in agronomy and working for a few years as an officer of the Ministry of Agriculture, Maazou decided to install a cattle feed factory in his hometown, made from cotton seed.
“We are able to satisfy about 80% of the demand per week or about 80 tons of feed per week,” says Maazou.
