Timinadia Group's story

The one holding the sheep's rope in the photo is Fatoumata. She is 50 years old and has 8 dependent children, 4 of them being at school. She has joined the RMCR along with the other members of her group to finance their activities (cattle and sheep rearing) which she has been doing for 7 years. She is very respected and stocks up in the local markets. Fatoumata resells his animals in the same markets to earn his profits which enable her to take care of her children in: school supplies and clothing.
She would like to help her children to achieve their educational objectives.
