And this for good reason: ahead of the state visit in the Agnéby-Tiassa, on the forthcoming May 4th, the First Lady, Mrs. Dominique Ouattara has offered large donations of various kind valued at 250 million CFA francs to the populations of that department.
FAFCI: 150 million CFA francs for the women
