Faso Kanu Group's story

Yacouba Zani is 55 years old and of Malian nationality. In the photo, he is the one raising his hand in the middle of the group. He is married and the father of 6 children between the ages of 2 and 28 years old.

Yacouba Zani has over 10 years of experience in raising cattle. He buys and sells them in fairs within his local area.
He uses his profits to improve his family's living conditions in terms of health, food, clothing and children's shoes. He is often challenged with drops in prices.

If the business goes well in the future, he plans to buy a piece of land in a town.
