Fassodeme Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy sheep for resale in order to cover household expenses.

Fassodeme Group's story

Oumar works with livestock, mainly sheep and cattle. He is Malian, 47 years old, and married with seven children between the ages of 3 and 16. Five of his children attend school. Oumar is literate. He purchases livestock at the local weekly markets and resells them in the same places.

After selling his animals, Oumar is able to earn up to 65 000 F a cycle. He has over a decade of experience in this sector. His revenue allows him to cover his children's medical and household costs. However, he often finds difficulty due to the death of his livestock despite veterinary care.

Oumar counts on the support of RMCR. With their help he is able to purchase many animals in order to develop his business and improve his family's quality of life.
