Cessiri Group's story

Drissa is a 36-year-old Malian, married and the father of 8 children, 6 boys and 2 girls of whom 1 girl and one boy go to school. He works hard in his livestock raising activity. He is the one wearing a white shirt in the middle of the photo holding the rope attached to a ram and two goats. Drissa has 10 years of experience in raising goats. His wife is in the rice trading business.

He uses his income to buy clothes and shoes for himself and some of his children. He buys and sells at the local market in cash. A difficulty in his livestock raising activity is incurable diseases which often kills the animals even if they are treated. But even with that, he gets by. Driss will have a provisional profit of between 35000 to 50000 which will help him cover the family expenses, notably health, school fees, clothing and shoes. In addition, he has good principles and a good reputation in his village.

He has borrowed to invest in 1 ram, 2 goats and 1 ox, along with feed and care. Drissa believes that his goat raising activity will help improve the living conditions of his family.
