“Agriculture for our parents was more for subsistence. But now we have to move beyond this. We have to feed ourselves and feed others as well. It’s not everyone who is called a farmer”, says Marcel.

At Makognadougou, 300 km from Ouagadougou, Marcel Ouédraogo, farmer, puts his competencies at the disposal of farmers through his various services.

After secondary school, Marcel chose to venture into agriculture over a job in the public sector because he had the ambition to succeed in agribusiness.

Today Marcel is producing high quality seedlings, plantlets and cuttings of various crops, as well as hedgerows on demand. Through his business, he has been able to support the education of his younger brothers and is mentoring other farmers in the region.
