“My name is Kaboré Sipoko Antoinnette, I am 39 years old, and I am mother of four. I have joined AZPF four years ago. I started weaving at home on a small loom. I have chosen this work because it helps me to take care of my children and to support my husband. I am very happy to work on international orders. The money I usually get from the work is mostly spent in my children school fees and food. Thanks to the collaboration with CABES and its partners, I have a professional artisan card and I have created a saving account for me and for my children and I am proud of it.”

Thanks to it, I am now able to cover my needs and to take care of my children. I really appreciate the collaboration with CABES because it gives us a lot of opportunities. Thanks to this collaboration with CABES, I have been trained on how to dye using GOTS certified dyes. I would like to thank all actors that value our work”.
