Gneta Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy goods for resale to support her family.

Gneta Group's story

Sali is the woman who has her hand on the condiments in the picture. She is a 41 year old Malian who has attended school. She is married and has 7 children between the ages of 4 and 25, who are all in school. Her husband is an elected representative in the municipality.

Sali has turned to the RMCR to support her business. She has been selling fruit, condiments and pagnes for a very long time. Sali buys her pagnes in Bamako and the condiments and fruit at a local market, and she resells them at the same market.

With the profits generated from her business, she has been able to cover some of the family's expenses, such as her children's medical expenses and the improvement of hygiene for her family. Her goal for the future is to obtain a larger loan to increase the volume of her sales and generate more profits.
