Hakilissoro Group's story

Youssouf is the one with his hand raised in the picture. He is a client at RMCR. He is Malian, 51 years old, married and father to 8 children, of which three are in school. He wife takes care of the household. He breeds oxen, which is the business for this loan. He has done this for 10 years.

Today all his animals have gone to pasture. He buys and sells his animals at the weekly fairs in his area. The breeding business is profitable for him because it allows him to cover the costs for care and education for his children. After the sale, he can have a profit of 25,000 F to 80,000 Fr over several months. However, he is often faced with the sickness and death of animals in spite of their veterinary care.

His dream is to build a large enclosure for his animals, improve his business, and eradicate his poverty to become independent.
