Generally, the sachets are consumed by people with limited financial resources. These these small packets containing liquor, vodka or brandy have spread in the country and have a huge demand especially because of their prices ranging from 200 CFA francs (30 cents euro) and 1,000 CFA francs (1.5 euros).
