A loan of $1,000 helped to buy 10 sheep.

Arame's story

The borrower is a married woman and mother of 9 children. She lives with her husband and all her children in a family house. She runs a small shop selling groceries but is mostly in the business of raising sheep. She buys purebred sheep that she raises and resells after 10 to 12 months. These two businesses generate revenues large enough for her to supplement her husband in taking care of the majority of the family expenses. Specifically, she takes care of all the children's school fees, medical expenses, and clothing. To strengthen her sheep-raising business, she is asking UIMEC for a loan of 500000 francs to buy 10 sheep. Her ambition is to grow her business.
