Bamtare Sinthiang Kaba Group's story

Ms. Mariama is the president of the group “BAMTARE SINTHIANG KABA” meaning “Development of Sinthiang Kaba” in the Peulh language. She is married, 58 years old, and the mother of two children (twins), aged 10, both in school. In the photo, she is the one holding the goat’s tether. She is uneducated and has been active in livestock farming, just like the other group members.

Ms. Mariama has good experience in this business for having done it for twenty years. She dreams of becoming a major farmer in her village. The group is composed of 17 energetic women in solidarity. They maintain good ties.

Ms. Mariama buys her livestock (sheep and goats) at the weekly markets in her town and in nearby villages to resell during major festivals and events (marriages, baptisms, etc.), as well as at weekly markets in town and in the sub-region.

With earnings varying from 15,000 to 20,000 francs CFA, she manages to support her husband in covering family expenses, such as school fees, healthcare, food, etc.

Loans enable her to purchase new animals to expand her farm.
