Sabougnouma N2 Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for sheep to resell in order to care for her children.

Sabougnouma N2 Group's story

AMINATA is a Malian woman raising sheep and doing commerce in peanuts. She is 42, living in a small village in Mali, married, and the mother of eight children, aged 5 to 25. She is the one holding the sheep’s horn in front of the members of the group. Her husband is a farmer in the same village.

AMINATA is illiterate. She started raising sheep and selling peanuts eight years ago. Taking responsibility for her children’s future, she turns to RMCR to obtain financing for her livestock business. She gets supplies from nearby villages and resells at local markets in the area.

From her sales of sheep, the profits enable her to cover certain family expenses, the costs of medical care and clothing for the children. In general, the difficulties she encounters are the death of some sheep and drops in the price of peanuts.
