A loan helped to buy sheep.

Dl_Ndoffene Group's story

This group was created in October 2007 and comprises very mutually supportive and dynamic women who work principally in retail and livestock fattening.

Rocky is standing on the right of the photo raising her hand and she is the group representative. She is 35 years old, married, and the mother of 4 children, 3 of whom are girls. She has been fattening livestock for several years and has good experience in this line of work.

She plans to use part of her loan to buy some sheep which she will fatten and resell after 3 months. She will use the rest of her loan to buy feed.

She plans to use the profits she makes to meet her needs and those of her family.
