Mali: Successful return after years of adventure

Dec3

Bamako – After living in Angola, Indonesia, the United States and other countries for many years, Sanoussi decides to return back to Mali and do business. But the return has not been easy due to cultural differences and unfavourable business environment. His strategy has been to plan his return gradually by spending some months abroad and some months in Mali, until he was ready to come back definitely. Today Sanoussi has over 100 lactating cows, which produce 300 litres of milk daily. “Youth say that without money, we cannot start anything. Me I would say that firstly, without the will, we cannot start anything,” says Sanoussi. This video has been produced in the framework of a partnership between Agribusiness TVVITA and Afronline.
