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 sheep to resell with the goal of earning income for her family.

Benkadi Group's story

Oumou is the one sitting with the bowl in her hands. Oumou is 59 years old, married, and the mother of five children, two of whom are in school. This woman’s main job is raising sheep, which she has done for 20 years with the help of her husband. The earlier profits of RMCR loans allowed Oumou to buy clothing for her children, as well as shoes, all while caring for them at the hospital when they were sick. She also has helped shoulder the burdens of family expenses, along with her husband.

She still counts on investing her new loan in sheep raising. She hopes to grow her sales numbers and still take care of her children. She stocks up on sheep at the local market in her area to resell them later at the big weekly market of her town, after six months of maintenance.

Oumou is very happy with her relationship with RMCR and hopes that it will continue.
