Bachir's passion for entrepreneurship came from the training sessions of the 2SCALE program in the scope of youth inclusion. According to him, even if he had long nurtured the idea of entrepreneurship, the training received through the 2SCALE-NUSEB
partnership catalyzed his decision to devote himself to his passion.
Overcoming socio-economic challenges
At the very beginning of his business, the young man could not count on the support of his parents who hoped to see him, one day, as a great business lawyer. Due to lack of means, he was forced to reduce his entrepreneurial zeal and not to implement other ideas. But his love for the poultry business remained intact, as he was very confident of his choice. Gradually, his company managed to build a business relationship with our business champion NUSEB. Indeed, a commercial collaboration agreement was signed between NUSEB and Poulet du Pays concerning the supply of processed broiler chicken to Poulet du Pays. This agreement, although it guarantees the first purchase from NUSEB, does not prohibit Poulet du Pays from sourcing live chicken from local markets, through its network of nearly 3000 producers and intermediaries (mostly young people and women across 3 regions of Niger, namely : Tillabéry, Niamey and Dosso) in case of high demand or in case of unavailability at NUSEB.
It is through this connection that he had to participate in several trainings organized by 2SCALE and have a supply contract with NUSEB.
Very quickly, his family and friends became aware of his unbelievable performance and the success he was achieving. He says:
Starting from scratch, POULETS DU PAYS has set up a value chain composed of a cooperative that works to support women in poultry production in 80 villages. It has also set up a distribution company for processed poultry with several actors. He recounts:
A positive influence on Nigerien youth
Poulet du Pays' approach is simple - going from village to village and identifying youth or women who are interested in poultry farming. It offers its services to youth and women and builds their capacity (improving productivity, setting up a farm and production unit) to create poultry cooperatives.
