Benkadi Group's story

Mariam is a 56-year-old married woman. In the photo, she has her hand on the condiments. She has ten children, ages 8 to 31, four of whom are in school.

She is a shopkeeper; her husband is an artisan. Mariam is requesting a loan to grow her business by purchasing more oil, peppers, hot peppers, okras, onions, apples, tomatoes, etc.

She is very brave and likes her work very much. She is illiterate, but she cares a lot about her children's education. She dreams night and day to help her children succeed by covering their tuition thanks to the profit gained from the loan.

She buys her supplies at the local market and then sells them in her village. After expenses, she can make 18,000 francs CFA as a monthly profit.
