A loan of $1,450 helps a member to purchase animals for resale in order to take care of his family.


Miri-Ikafolena Group's story

Malick is a 37 year old farmer who lives in Mali with his wife and 5 children. His children are ages 4 to 10 and two are in school. In the photo, Malick is the one holding the goat in front of the other members of the group.

Given the solvency of the group, he is requesting another loan from RMCR for their business. He has been involved in breeding for 6 years. He has an income of 100,000 FCFA per cycle which allows him to take care of his family.

Malick is very well respected in his circle. He is requesting a loan to improve his business. He gets his inventory at the surrounding markets where he resells his sheep after a few months.

In this group: Saba, Yamoussa, Malick, Porna, Mahamadou
