A loan helped to buy bulbs and fertilizers for his banana plantation.

Fasso Den Youmaya Group's story

Adama is a Malian banana grower. In the photo, he is the one holding the banana bunch. He is 42 years old and married with 7 children, 6 of whom are school educated. He grows bananas on a plot of 1.5 hectares in his native village. His wife sells food products under the village's great baobab tree.

RMCR loans help him to buy bulbs, fertilizers, etc. His yield has increased greatly and so have his profits, which allow him to provide for his family.

Adama's hurdle is the scarcity of water in the regular season, which impedes his activity.

His goal is to expand his activity with irrigation canals. He would like to take over new markets.
