Only 28 years old, Djibril Belko Hamsatou is a young Nigerien woman who is passionate about moringa production and the transformation of its by-products. moringa nothing is lost, everything can be used for something, leaves, oil and seeds. In order to live her passion to the fullest, the young Hamsatou does not want to be satisfied with just consuming the plant with a thousand virtues, she has decided to invest in production.
This is the story of a young pioneer in moringa production in Niger.
It all started in the department of Say, located about 60 km from Niamey, in the region of Tillabéry. Trained as a midwife, Hamsatou has been passionate about agriculture for a long time.
I owe this passion for agriculture to one of my aunts who is a millet and cowpea farmer, whom I followed to the field since I was a child. Being in the plantations, cultivating or ploughing ended up being a real pleasure and a passion for me. As far as moringa is concerned, it is a very special and nutritious food. I think as a young person I can contribute to the popularization of this plant in Niger.
