but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy sheep and resell them in order to support his family.

Saniya Group's story

Soudou is the man holding the horn of the ram in the picture. He is 33 years old, married, and has 5 children aged 8 to 17. Two of his children go to school. His wife raises sheep and engages in trade to care for her family.

Soudou has been raising sheep for 8 years. He buys his livestock at markets in his area. His partnership with RMCR has allowed him to buy additional sheep. The sale of his animals can bring in a profit of 20 000 F to 25 000 F per head. With this profit, he manages to feed his family, cover medical expenses, and pay for the education of his children. Currently, he owns 4 sheep, which he tends to with extensive veterinary care. He has a good reputation in his village.

Soudou requests an additional loan to grow his livestock business.
