A loan helped to buy cereals to resell in order to support her family's needs.

Djiguiya N°2 Group's story

Mamadou is a vendor of cereals, he can be found in the photograph in front of the others with the bags of cereals and the scale; at 43 years old he is the father of five children between the ages of 3 and 16, two of which attend school. Mamadou has worked in commerce for over 15 years. With his previous Kiva loan, he was able to buy and sell in the local fairs.

In partnering with RMCR, the Djiguiya N°2 Group is able to develop their businesses.

Mamadou plans to use this loan to increase his profits, which will allow him to pay his children's tuition and cover other household expenses.

Mamadou has many dreams for the future: to increase his savings and build houses for his children.

The main obstacle for his business is poor rainfall, which increases the profitability of the crops.
