Koladje Group's story

Harouna, 42-years-old, raises cattle, He is married and the father of three children, all of whom are in school. He is the one with his hand posed on the cattle.

For the last 10 years, he has purchased lean oxen, fattens them up, and re-sells them at the cattle market of his region. His partnership with RMCR allows him to purchase more oxen, oilcakes {for feeding cattle}, and medicine for veterinary care. His spouse, helps him better take care of the oxen by giving them food and drink when he is absent.

His turnover has greatly increased and also his profit that is estimated at 100,000 to 200,000 per month. This gain allows, on the one hand, to provide for the needs of the family, notably the education of the children, the health of the children, and the improvement of (their) food quality.

With a large means of financing, he envisions spreading his business in order to respond to the needs of the community.
