A loan helped to purchase sheep for resale in order to pay for certain family expenses.

Benkadi Group's story

Moussa is the one holding the sheep's horn in the photo. He is an Malien farmer of 51 years of age. He has not attended school. He is married and the father of eleven children, ages ranging from six to 32 years old, two of whom are currently in school. Moussa is asking for the support of RMCR to be able to conduct his livestock fattening business. He makes his purchases at the local markets and then resells in the same markets. The profits he earn allow him to care for certain family expenses such as medical expenses and purchasing clothes for his children.
In the future, he would like to have a larger loan to increase the size of his business to increase profits.
