A loan helped a member to buy animals to sell in order to support his family.


Badeya Group's story

Youssouf is 40 years old and married. He is the father of 6 children and 2 of them are in school.

He's quite brave and is holding on to the ram in the photo.

Youssouf has used RMCR loans to develop his sheep farming business. He buys animals and then, after feeding them and providing them with veterinary care, he sells them in the same area.

The money he makes from this business allows him to take care of his family's needs (clothing, school, etc.).

In the future, he would like to raise a lot of rams and sheep to earn enough income to improve his family's home and take care of his children's education and health.
