Benkadi Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy onions, okra and baobab leaves.

Benkadi Group's story

Yah has been a Malian trader for more than thirty-five years. She is fifty-six years old and is seen in the photo standing behind the bag of dried onions. Yah is a widow and has six children, of whom two currently attend school.

Yah has requested this loan from the field partner, RMCR to buy more dried onions, baobab leaves and okra. She buys her supplies from local markets and sells them at the main market. Her monthly earnings enable her to pay for her family's needs and for schooling for two of her children. Her main problem is that she must sell her goods on credit.
