Yeyssa is a married woman and a mother of five children. Two of her children attend primary school in her village, while two others go to the middle school located in the nearest city, 5 km away. Yeyssa takes care of the housework in her home and simultaneously raises sheep and goats.

As the Tabaski holiday approaches, she is buying sheep which she fattens and then resell at a good price. This business enables her to change her wardrobe, renew the children's clothing, and really help to cover her family's food costs.

In order to restart, she is requesting a loan of 250,000 francs to buy sheep and some animal feed.
