A loan helped to buy sheep for sheep fattening.

01_Ngmaro Group's story

These twenty-one women have been members of the group established in their area since February 2001. They are from the same village and share strong bonds of kinship, friendship and solidarity. Their main business is fattening. These brave women have repaid more than 10 loans on time.
Ms. Nogoye is 67 years old and is the group representative. She is standing at the far right on the photo with her hand up. She is married and mother of seven children who are over the age of majority.
Nogoye is active in the sheep fattening and she is helped by her children. She buys the subjects in a neighboring village and raises them at home. She has over 20 years of experience in this sector.
With her new loan, she intends to buy 4 sheep and feed. After 5 to 6 months of feeding, she will resell the sheep in the village with a profit margin.
Her profits allow her to strengthen her savings, increase her livestock and participate in daily expenses.
