A loan of $1,750 helped a member to buy sugar peas to resell in order to earn money for his family.

Nieta Group's story

Moussa is pictured holding the balance. Moussa is 21 years old and is a farmer who stocks sugar peas. He is married without children and his partner is a farmer and housewife.

For 3 years, Moussa has been buying sugar peas to stock and resell for a profit. He lives in Mali and hopes to become a large trader in the future. Moussa has a ninth grade education and borrows from RMCR in order to be able to buy more sugar peas. He gets supplies in the nearby villages and sells retail-wholesale at the public market. He foresees a profit of 30,000 fcfa; this loan will help him augment his revenue. Stocking is a beneficial activity that pushes Moussa to work hard, but sometimes falling prices of sugar peas lead to poor sales.
