A loan helped to buy sheep to resell so as to better support his family.

Parissin Group's story

Alberique is the gentleman who is holding the sheep and standing in front of his group members. He is 59 years old, married to two wives, and the father of 13 children aged 6 to 18, of whom six are enrolled in school. He is a farmer but also raises small livestock. He buys his animals in the markets near his village.

Alberique has been in this business for more than 30 years. He resells animals at the weekly markets in his area. He makes an approximate monthly profit of 75,000 francs. He counts on loans from RMCR to develop his activity by buying a lot of sheep and goats to raise.

His dream is to become an important supplier of livestock in his village. He hopes that in that way he will be able to pay school fees for his children and take charge of all the household expenses for his family's needs.

Alberique loves this business despite its multiple risks (price drop, livestock illness, death of animals.)
