With a degree in Marketing and Business Management, Oubratou SAKANDÉ embarked on her entrepreneurial journey in 2017.
Her company, “Oubratou”, specialises in the production and marketing of soumbala, a spice made from néré seeds and widely used in Burkina Faso cuisine. It offers products such as soumbala in granules, balls and powder. To meet the needs of customers who cannot tolerate the smell of this spice, she has also innovated by creating soumbala without smell.
Her journey was not without its difficulties, but thanks to the support of her mother, she was able to obtain a loan to develop her business. Today, she remains positive and ambitious for the next stages of her business.
