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

A loan helped to pay for sacks of peanuts to resell in order to take care of the family.

Benkadi Group's story

Fatoumata is the one sitting in front of her group in the middle and holding a 20-liter container of peanut oil. She is 39 and a married woman who is very devoted to her small business. The mother of seven children (aged 1 to 17), of whom three are in school, she has been doing commerce for six years. Her husband is a farmer by trade and very motivated raising sheep.

With RMCR loans, Fatoumata makes her purchases, and her sales are made in cash at the local fairs. Turning to RMCR helps a lot to develop her business, from which the profits help to support her children. Her hope and dream for the future: obtaining more sheep for her children. In her work, the obstacle which impacts her is slow sales.
