Abdoul-Rasmané's story

Abdoul-Rasmané is married and the father of three children. He is a livestock farmer and has been raising ruminants for over 12 years in an outlying district. This is his third loan cycle with YIKRI. He is seeking a new loan to buy two oxen and 20 bags of corn bran in order to properly care for them. This will help him to meet customer demand on time. With the resulting profits, he plans to reinvest in his farm and to save money to care for his children.
