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 animals for later resale in order to renovate his house one of these days.


Benkadi Group's story

SAMOU is the one holding the cow’s rope in the photo. SAMOU is a Malian cow farmer. He is a 38-year-old married father of seven (four boys and three girls). The children are ages 2-18, and they do not attend school. SAMOU didn’t get the chance to go to school, but he holds his own with his business. SAMOU has been running this business (cow farming) for 10 years. His wife runs a small business and helps him with his business. SAMOU turned to RMCR to support and reinforce his business. With his loan, he will buy cows and animal feed in the weekly fairs in his area. He raises, fattens, and then sells them at the same fairs. What he likes the most about his business is that he earns enough profits to take good care of his family. SAMOU doesn’t get discouraged while running his business, because he hasn’t faced any difficulties with his loan from RMCR, in his personal life, or in his family life. He hopes to have a lot of money in the days to come in order to raise a lot of cows for the well being of his children.
