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 cows for later resale.

Benkadi Group's story

Lassina is seen in the photo holding the goat's horn. He is thirty-nine years old and his wife looks after their home. Lassina never attended school and has been a client of the field partner RMCR for many years. He greatly appreciates the services offered by RMCR. He is father to five children, one of his sons has attended school. They are aged from seven to nineteen years old.

Lassina has been raising cows since he was young and he buys his livestock from local markets. In the past, his family lived in very difficult conditions but thanks to this loan system he is now able to feed and clothe his children. He will earn between 25,000 - 30,000 francs CFA for a cow.

This will be the seventeenth loan for Lassina and he hopes to improve his finances in the future so he can buy more animals and improve his home.
