Jekabara Group's story

The man holding the sheep in the picture is Mamoutou. He is a 47-year-old Malian, an educated farmer married to a housewife and father to 7 children. He is a dependable customer of RMCR and, as well as growing produce, also raises sheep and cattle. He has been doing this for 16 years. He turned to RMCR for support because he had limited funds.

He gets his supplies at the local markets and makes his sales at the same markets. He uses his profits to cover his children's educational expenses and some of his family's needs. He is happy in his work which is profitable, and he does it well because he enjoys it. He often has to deal with problems related to lower prices and certain animal diseases.

His dream is to one day become a large cattle farmer so that he can have a lot in town where his children could live while attending high school.
