In 2002, a socio-political crisis erupted in Ivory Coast. Nana Sabine, who was residing in Abidjan at the time, returned to her homeland of Burkina Faso as part of a repatriation operation called 'Bayiri'. Upon arrival with other returnee women, she created a new association, whose main activity was the processing of cassava into fresh attiéké (a traditional cassava-based dish). In the Mooré language, 'nana-lim' simply means food at a lower cost. Nana is the founder of NANALIM, a processing company for agro-food products, particularly cassava. Aware of the inaccessibility of the inhabitants of the Sahel and other remote regions to quality attiéké, NANALIM looked to innovate the processing in order to make it easy to conserve. Today, dried and fresh attiéké are marketed throughout Burkina Faso and also exported to neighboring countries under the brand Nanatiéké (affordable attiéké in the Mooré language).
