Sewesse 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 sell on in order to earn more money for the family.

Sewesse Group's story

Fatoumata works rearing and selling sheep. She is 37 years old and lived in a village in Mali. She is married and has six children aged between five and 20, five of whom are in school. She is the one with her hand on the sheep in the photo.

Fatoumata has been rearing and selling sheep for ten years. This has enabled her to earn a decent income and has given her good insight into the business. In the recent future, she hopes to earn enough money to secure her children's education. She purchases sheep from the nearby villages and sells in the same areas. Her average monthly profit is 80,000 CFA.

She has turned to RMCR to ask for sufficient funds to grow her business in order to increase her profits.
