A loan of $2,675 helps a member to buy animals to resell so he can take care of his family.


Nieta-Baara Group's story

This is Sadio, he is 35 years old, not formally educated, and lives in a rural commune in Mali.
He is married and has two children, who are 8 months old and 3 years old, and not in school. His hopes and dreams for the future are to develop his family in terms of education and health care and then to be financially independent. Given his unfavourable living conditions, he sought financial support from Micro Finance Institutions such as RMCR. Sadio goes to the nearby weekly markets for supplies and then sells his livestock for cash on the public market. The loan will be used to develop his sheep fattening business. His fattening business is profitable, with an estimated profit of 90,000 CFA francs after the sale in 6 months.

With 4 years' experience in the business, the feeding and maintenance of the animals is often lacking given the scale of the family's workload.
