A loan helped a member to buy goats to sell and to earn a profit for the family.


Sabugnuman Group's story

A Malian, Routh is 36 years old. She is married and the mother of six children, four of whom are in school. Her children are between 1 and 17 years old. Routh did not go to school. She has raised animals since she was 10 years old. Today she hopes to develop this business to make it her primary source of income.
In the photo, she is the woman with her hand on the goat. She is using the loan from RMCR to buy goats for resale. She stocks up in the surrounding villages and sells at the local market. After the sale she can have a profit, each cycle, of 25 000FCFA. The profit collected from the sale of the goats will allow her to take care of the health, education and clothing for her children. She did not have a problem with the loan from RMCR.
In the future, Routh hopes to have a larger loan to develop her business raising animals and to better satisfy the needs of her customers and those of her family.
