Benkadi Group's story

Alima is pictured holding the ram's horn. She is 42 years old, from Mali, and is the married mother of six children. Three of her children attend school. Her husband is a farmer. She is very courageous and ambitious.

Alima has been raising domestic animals for six years. She buys and sells her animals at the weekly fairs in her area. This livestock raising business is profitable and results in earnings of 25,000 to 40,000 F every eight months. The profits from this RMCR loan will allow her to cover her healthcare needs, as well as clothes and school fees for her children. She plans to set up a space with a wire fence to better sell her animals and lift herself out of poverty.
