Gneta Group's story

Yaya, the one who is holding the horn of the ram, is standing amongst the members of the group. He is 30 years old, married, father of 3 children aged 8 to 17 years old. Two of his children go to school. His spouse is a sheep breeder and runs a small business for the wellbeing of their family.

He has been breeding sheep for the past 8 years. He gets his stock from weekly markets in his neighborhood.

Yaya can earn a profit of 15000 à 20 000F per head.

His income helps him to meet the nutritional needs of his family, to cover the medical and school costs of his children.
He currently has 4 sheep which require a lot of veterinarian care. He is generous and has a good reputation in his village.
Yaya claims that he has another more important loan to grow his breeding business.
