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

A loan helped to buy oxen to resell in order to provide for his children.

Sabunyuma Group's story

Kassum is the man holding the ox on the picture. He is illiterate but very involved in his cattle fattening business. He is married and the father of five children, aged 4 months to 10 years old, two of whom go to school. Kassum is thirty nine years old. He is managing his business well thanks to fifteen years of experience and thanks to the help of his brave wife who strives on her side for the well-being of their children. Kassum buys and sells his cattle at local fairs.
Resorting to RMCR [Kiva's partner in Mali] really contributes to the developpement of his business, whose generated profits help him provide for his children.
His dreams and hopes for the future are to protect his children's lives.
One of the biggest obstacle he faces in running his business is the death of the cattle.
