Djikiya-Ton Group's story

Bakary is a Malian, aged 41, and the married father of eight children, of whom four are in school. For eighteen years, he has been raising sheep. His wife is a homemaker.

He is borrowing from RMCR to purchase more livestock and to develop his business. He gets supplies at the public fair and from nearby. Sales are made at the same marketplace.

Thanks to the earnings generated, he is coping with the needs of his children: school fees, healthcare, and clothing. His wish is that he might be a major livestock farmer. In the photo, Bakary is the one with his hand on the livestock’s head in front of the other group members.
