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

A loan helped to buy animals for resale in order to support his family.

Nieta Group's story

Pictured above is Siraba, a 41-year-old Mali native and husband and father of eight children, four of whom attend school (three boys and one girl).

Siraba has been raising sheep and cattle for at least ten years. He buys his livestock at the local village market, raises them for several months, and resells them to the highest bidder at the same local market. Since his sheep are of a better breed, he may or may not resell them at this market.
He invests part of his profits after sales in family expenses and the other part back into his business.

Difficulties he encounters include the high cost of livestock and feed as well as physical fatigue. To overcome these obstacles and support his business, Siraba has turned to RMCR for a loan, as well as to become an important livestock farmer in the area and a person of reference in his field.
