A loan of $2,700 helps a member to buy sheep in order to resell them and purchase weather-protecting clothing for his children.


Djiguiya Group's story

Larabou is holding the sheep's rope in the featured photo. He is a 53-year-old Malian man and is married with five children, who range in age from five to 25 years old. He is a ram and oxen breeder and his wife is a homemaker. He buys and sells his livestock in the local weekly fairs.

Larabou's sales can generate between 70,000 and 90,000 XOF in income per semester. He has been engaged in this line of work for the past 11 years and his earnings allow him to cover his family's medical expenses, clothing, food needs and school fees. However, he frequently encounters business issues related to the low price of livestock at the markets.

Larabou is requesting RMCR's support in order to buy more livestock, build a big enclosure and develop his business. His goal is to escape poverty and improve his family's living conditions.
