A loan helped a member to pay for livestock for resale.


Yeredon Group's story

Korotimi is the group's representative and can be found holding the sheep. She is a gentle and hardworking woman. At 52 years old, Korotimi breeds sheep and sells cereals. She has 19 years of experience in this sector. She is married with four children, two of which are still school-age. Korotimi is literate. Her husband is a livestock vendor and often helps her with her animals.

Korotimi and the Yeredon group has repaid their last loan to RMCR. With it, they were able to increase their capital and generate higher profits.

Korotimi conducts business in the local area. She has recently run into a problem with the low price of animals in the market, and with sickness in her flock. She is in the process of overcoming these difficulty.

Korotimi's goal for the future is to save enough capital to increase the volume of her flock, which will generate a sufficient profit to help her achieve financial autonomy.
