A loan helped to buy sheep to resell.

Gie Fanafa Group's story

Aged 53 years old, Mrs. FANTA is the representative of the Economic Interest Group "FANAFA", a mixed group which is active in the business of breeding. Married, she lives with her husband, who is a farmer, and three dependent children aged between 4 and 15 years old, all attending school.

Mrs. FANTA has been raising sheep for six years. She has turned to VISION FUND SENEGAL to expand her business. She obtains her supplies in the weekly markets of her village. In order to sell her sheep, Mrs. FANTA has her own customers that she contacts after a few months of breeding. After the sale, the profit will be used to satisfy the needs of the family (medical expenses, food in sufficient quantity, clothes and others).

In this area, the problem for the breeders is the loss of some animals due to the climate which is not always stable.
