Djiguiseme Group's story

Fatoumata is a school-educated 59-year-old housewife living in Mali. She has six children, all of whom are grown and married, as well as a 13-year-old grandson. She is the one holding the ram’s rope in the group photo.

Fatoumata’s main business is raising livestock, which she has been doing for over twelve years. She is seeking a loan from RMCR to buy a beef cow in her local village market. She will raise it for several months and resell it in the same market. After making her sale, she will be able to meet her needs, including buying enough food to feed her grandchildren who live with her. In the future, Fatoumata wants to work in other fields like sales in addition raising livestock.
