A loan of $3,925 helps a member to buy livestock to resell and to provide for his family.


Tiessiri-Ton Group's story

Abdramane, age 23, is a farmer who fattens cattle during the dry season. He is married and the father of two children, ages four and two.

Abdramane has been fattening cattle for five years. He gets his animals from the local livestock market. He borrows from RMCR in order to buy more cattle to fatten. He dreams of becoming an expert in this field, so he can provide for his family, especially in terms of education and healthcare for his children.

Wholesalers purchase cattle from Abdramane. Currently, the challenge facing his business is the falling sale price of cattle. Abdramane has projected profits of 145,000 francs every four months.

Due to COVID-19, he is the only person in the photo.
