A loan helped to buy rams to resell in order to take care of her children who are ill.

Benkadi Group's story

Sata is the one holding the ram’s rope among the group members. She is a 58-year-old married mother of three children, ages 13 – 22, one of whom attends school. Her spouse raises sheep and does some selling for the family’s wellbeing. Sata has been raising sheep for more than 20 years and stocks up at the local weekly fairs. She can earn an estimated 20,000-25,000 FCFA per head. With the sale of the animals, she is able to meet the nutritional needs of her family, their medical expenses, and her children’s school fees. Nowadays, she has three sheep she is taking good care of with veterinary care. She is generous and has a good reputation in her village. Sata wishes to have subsequent loans to grow her business.
