Benkan Group's story

Adiaratou is the one holding a sheep by the rope. She is a 45-year old widow with two children, both of whom have gone to school. Her children are 20 and 27 years old.

Adiaratou has been raising livestock and selling second-hand clothes in 20 years. She stocks up at the local market and resells her merchandise at the weekly market in Kolokani. Adiaratou reaches out to RMCR for financing.

Adiaratou’s revenues allow her to provide for her family. She often has to struggle with an increase in prices when stocking up on her merchandise. Adiaratou would like to become a major livestock farmer in the future. She is comfortable with this line of work and would like to be part of the economic development of her community.
