Soutoura Group's story

Adama, age 36, is a member of the group. He's the one holding the ram in the photograph. He is married, lives in Mali, and has 5 children, age 1 to 8. One of them goes to school.

He raises sheep. He gets his supplies in weekly fairs in his area, and resells in the cities. Lacking financial means, he's seeking help from RMCR in order to be able to run his business. His monthly income amounts to XOF 200'000.

The loan will help him turn a profit in order to provide for his family's needs : healthcare, school, etc. Adama has been raising sheep for more than ten years. He would like to increase his income in order to ensure his children's well-being in the future.
