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 fruit and vegetables for resale to enable her family to build a home.

Benkadi Group's story

Mari is in the middle holding the plate of vegetables. Mari is married with two children who both go to school. She sells fruit and vegetables and has much experience in this business as she has been doing it for eight years. She buys her stock at the big market in Bamako and sells at the local markets in her district. The previous loans enabled her to help her husband with the family expenses and above all, to provide for the needs of her children. Mari still plans to invest her new loan in her business. In the future, she would like to build a solid house and open a big shop in her locality. She is happy to see Kiva work with RMCR and hopes that this collaboration will work to everyone's advantage.
