The head of the Coopec agency in Sakassou, Soro Dieudonné, explained this disastrous situation by the unhealthy behavior of many members who leave Sakassou permanently without leaving a trace or change their geographical address. He also justified this non-reimbursement of credits by the fact that the borrowers do not invest in income-generating activities (IGA) for which the loan was granted.
All the members of the Coopec de Sakassou were invited to work alongside the employees of the said structure in order to find all those who vanished in the wild with the funds and above all, to bring them to fulfill their credits.
