Sababouyuma Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy soy, then to sell soumbala (a spicy condiment made from nere seeds) to provide for her needs.
Sababouyuma Group's story
Saly is shown holding the recipient containing the soy. She is 56, Malien, and married with seven children who are all married. She supports her grandchildren. She is very courageous in the work that she has been doing for 20 years now. Saly stocks soy and, at the same time, transforms the raw material into the refined product that is soumbala [a sort of spicy condiment]. She resorts to a loan from RMCR to expand her business to answer the demand of her customers and this contributes to considerable development. Her spouse helps her a lot in this work because he supervises the reserve stocks. She brings in a monthly income of 15,000 FCFA. In her business, she does not really have any difficulties.
