Arame Loum's Group's story

The group was formed on the 21st of December 2009. It is made up of women who live in the same area and who all work in the rearing of cattle, sheep and goats.

Arame, the group's 67 year-old leader, is the lady with her hand raised in the background of the photograph. She is married and has a daughter and a son.

With her loan she is seeking to purchase a dozen sheep, 3 or 4 goats and 3 cows, which she will fatten, rear and sell.

With the profits she generates she will see to her family's needs, such as daily expenditure, and her grandchildren's school fees.
