This loan helps to buy sheep and raise them for resale.
Abdramane is 45 years old and is pictured holding the ram’s head. He is a member of the Yiriwa group and never received a formal education. He lives with his wife and seven children, five of whom are girls between the ages of 2 and 17. Three of his children attend school.
For the last seven years, Abdramane has been buying sheep and fattening them for resale. He uses the profits to cover his children’s expenses. In addition to housework, his wife also raises sheep to help him with certain family expenses.
Abdramane has paid back his previous loans on time. Now, he is requesting a 5th loan to buy more sheep and feed in order to earn a profit of 30,000 fcfa. This will allow him to satisfy more of his children’s needs. He will make his purchases and sales at the local market in the town of Dah. He hopes to become financially independent one day.
