The Sategui Plains community is near the city of Lai, in southern Chad. This area is unique in terms of its diversity because many people from different ethnicities have migrated here in search of work. It's mostly dry and hot throughout the year, except for about four to five months when there's rain and flooding of the Logone River. Most people in Sategui Plains farm, which is the mainstay of the economy. Rice is the main crop and some people also plant sorghum.
