A loan helped a member to buy cattle for resale in order to make a profit for the family.


Yiriwa N'tiany Group's story

Diatourou is the man in the picture who is holding the bull. He is a Malian man of 34 years, and the father of two children aged 2 and 5 years old.

Diatourou would like to obtain funding to buy supplies in order to better fatten his cattle and generate more profits.
This is one of the reasons why he applied for funding from IMF to buy more cattle feed. He has been in this business for 4 years. After tending to his bulls for months, he resells them in local fairs. He makes a considerable profit, which allows him to meet his family's expenses.
