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 some cattle to sell so he can take good care of his family.

Benkadi Group's story

Kalifa is the one with the raised hand in the photo. He is from Mali and is a 31-year-old married father of three children, two girls and one boy. The children are between two and eight years old and one of the girls is in school. His wife takes care of the household.

Kalifa has been raising cattle for the past five years. He buys and sells his animals at the weekly fairs in his area. The livestock farming business is profitable for him because it allows him to cover the costs of caring for and educating his children. After selling, he can have a profit of 50,000 XOF over several months.

Kalifa’s dream is to be a good livestock farmer and to be autonomous one day.
