Siguitimogoson Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy sheep to resell in order to feed her family well.

Siguitimogoson Group's story

In the photo, the woman presenting the ram is called Balkissa. She is 30 years old and lives in Mali with her husband and three children, two of them sons enrolled in school. For six years, she has been buying sheep in local markets, fattening them, and reselling them at a profit. Her husband is an agriculturalist.

Balkissa is seeking a loan to buy some young rams and sheep so as to develop her business and earn more profit when she resells her animals. That will allow her to help her husband with family expenses, notably healthcare and sufficient food for her children.
