Miriya Group's story

That's Lamine who is holding the ram's horns in the picture. He is 38 years old, married, and father of 6 children. The youngest is a year old and the eldest is 12 years old. He has three boys and three girls. The three girls and one boy are in school.

He has been working in ovine farming for more than 8 years. He purchases from fairs in his locality and he sells his sheep on site. Each quarter, he can make a profit of 45,000 CFA after sales. He wants to have a lot of money to grow his ovine farming business.

He is delighted to thank the MFI for their funding.
