Household incomes are unpredictable putting the people in a precarious financial situation since they depend mostly on agricultural activities. However, in this rural region farming is difficult because the fields are regularly destroyed by roaming domestic animals (cattle, sheep etc), and because the rains are variable from one year to the next with a total lack of water during the dry season. There are two government clinics, in Séguétiélé and in Kombolokoro, but they are minimally equipped and run by a government nurse without supervision of a doctor. Neither has a laboratory. Many patients are obliged to travel to Korhogo or to the Baptist Clinic in Torogokaha (42 km) by motorcycle or mini-bus in order to receive the care they need.
