Diekabara Group's story

Dofing is a 47-year-old illiterate Malian farmer. He lives in a rural town in Mali with his family. He is married to a stay-at-home wife and father to eight children between the ages of 2 and 25. His income-generating activity is farming and animal husbandry. His dream is to own a tractor so he can expand his field, increase his revenues, and provide for his family. It is this growing ambition that motivated him to turn to an RMCR loan. With the loan he will be able to cultivate larger fields (of ground nuts, sesame, watermelon, and beans). He will also buy animal feed and pay for their veterinary expenses himself. He plans on using profits from his business to guarantee the education and well-being of his children. Dofing is the man holding the hoe.
