Benkadi Group's story

Aramatou is a member of the Bendaki Group. She is married, 36 years old and the mother of five children aged 3 to 17, two of whom go to school. Aramatou raises sheep. Her husband is a farmer. She borrows money from RMCR and is planning to buy a larger quantity of sheep.

Aramatou has been in this business for 4 years. She stocks up on fair days in her village and resells at the same market. With the profit from her sales, she is able to meet the needs of her children, including school fees, health needs, clothing and food costs. The main difficulties that she encounters are the drop in price of the livestock and often their death. Her dream is to become a big sheep farmer in the future.
