Nipagagnon 1 Group's story

The gentleman holding the bull by the rope in the photo is Lassine: a 47-year-old acclaimed beef breeder who is highly respected in his area. He lives in Mali and is married with eight children to look after, four of whom go to school, leaving three girls and a boy. Lassine is financed by RMCR in his beef rearing business and other income-generating activities that he has been involved in for 15 years.

He buys the animals from local markets and after a period of tending and treatment he sells them on at those same markets. The income he earns enables him to meet his family's needs. In the future he would like to become a serious import/export breeder.
