A loan helped to purchase sheep to sell.

Djekafo Group's story

Yaya is the gentleman holding the sheep in the photo. He is a Malian farmer/livestock farmer who did not attend school and is 48 years old. Yaya is married and the father of six children from the ages of four to 12, two of whom attend school. His wife is a housekeeper.

Yaya has been raising sheep for more than five years. He is a solvent client of RMCR, and takes loans from them in order to purchase many sheep. He gets his supplies in the local markets and resells his livestock in the same markets. The profit that Yaya makes from his business allows him to meet a number of his family's needs.

Yaya often encounters a slump in the sales of his livestock. His dream is to become a sheep exporter, which is why he is requesting a larger loan, to better meet his family's needs.
