Benkadi Group's story

Fatoumata is a member of the Benkadi group, which consists exclusively of women. In the photo, she is the woman holding the ram. She is a citizen of Mali and was born in the countryside on December 31st, 1989. She is married and the mother of three girls, two of whom go to school. Her daughters' ages range from 5 to 15.

Fatoumata has been raising sheep for the past six years. This activity allows her to make an income, to take care of her needs, and to provide for those of her children. She buys her livestock at the local market and resells her animals at the same venue.

Fatoumata would like to get a large loan in order to buy four sheep which she will fatten and resell for an expected profit of 80,000 CFA francs. With the profits from her loan she will be able to help her husband to support the family. She also plans to buy new clothes and school supplies for her children and to cover their health expenses.
