Servienne Sebgo
Burkina 2023
Servienne Sebgo never planned to pursue a career in agriculture. Despite this, she became Burkina Faso's first female Soil Engineer, who studies the formation and evolution of soils, and has been working at the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Resources and Fisheries since 2011. Servienne has been helping implement the Burkina Faso Government's agricultural policy for the past three years. Servienne has also been Executive Secretary of the Association des Femmes Pour le Developpement Durable de l'Agriculture (Women's Association for the Sustainable Development of Agriculture) since 2020 and is truly committed to fighting for the cause of women through sustainable development.  
In our grandparents’ days, land was plentiful. When soil became degraded, all they had to do was to clear land elsewhere. That is no longer an option, largely due to property speculation
