A loan of $1,400 helps a member buy goats for resale.


Kawral Sare Yero Tening Group's story

Madame Diary, shown in the picture, is the president of a group comprising eight women and called "KAWRAL SARE YERO TENING," which means "AGREEMENT."

She is 47 years old, married, and the mother of four children (two girls and two boys) who all go to school. They are between the ages of 5 and 15. Her husband is a breeder.

She is not educated but wishes to grow her breeding business and increase sales with the help of MFI financing. She hopes to use this loan to purchase goats in neighboring villages as well as forage. She will sell her animals at markets that occur every week.

She has been in this business for more than nine years supported by the demand for her products in the region. However, given strong demand, especially during the holiday season, she struggles to meet the expectations of her customers. The income she earns will help to better support her family, including the well-being of her children in terms of schooling, food, clothing, and health.

In this group: Diary, Hawa, Saigatou, Mariama, Fatoumata Binta, Meta, Fatou, Mariama

This loan is special because:

It enables low-income farmers in Senegal to increase their income and provide for their families.
