Soroyiriwaton Group's story

Karim is the man holding the horn of the beef in the photo. He is a Malian farmer, 35 years old, married and the father of 3 children aged 3 to 8 years of whom one is in school. His wife is a homemaker. Karim is a client of RMCR. He has worked in the business of fattening cattle and sheep for more than 8 years. He buys his supplies in the surrounding markets and resells in the same markets. The income that he makes allows him to take care of the family, including health care costs, clothing costs and school fees.

He borrows money from RMCR to buy greater quantities of cattle and sheep to increase his income. Poor sales and the increase in the price of transportation are the problems that he often encounters.

In the future the hope of Karim is to have a bigger loan to increase his animal raising to satisfy the needs of his family.
