Tiéssiri Group's story

Kondjiri is an illiterate 30 year old married woman. She lives in a rural commune in Mali with her husband and a 5 year old child who is not in school.

Kondjiri aims high for the well-being of her child and wants autonomy when it comes to expenses. As a rural wife, she is fully committed to taking charge of the household needs.

Previously, she found it difficult to time her business of fattening sheep favorably. With the financial support of RMCR she has made progress. Kondjiri makes her purchases at the weekly fair and sells in the same place in cash. With 12, 500f of expected monthly profit she can see that the business is cost effective..

She has been in the business for 5 years. At times she has come across epidemics in animals.
