A loan helped to buy three sheep.

Magatte's Group's story

This group was created in March 2010. It is made up of women who get on well together, and who work in trade and livestock fattening. Magatte is standing on the right in the photo. She is 47 and married with five children of whom two are girls. She is the star borrower and works in livestock fattening. She is very experienced in this domain. With her new loan, she plans to buy three sheep that she will fatten up and resell after about five or six months. She will use the rest of the loan to buy animal fodder. With the profits, she plans to buy a bed or a wardrobe to improve living conditions for her family.
