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 sheep for resale in order to meet the needs of his family.

Benkadi Group's story

Dongota is the man who is holding the sheep on the picture. He is Malian, 45 years old, and married with 8 children. Dongota is a breeder and animal fattener. His business consists in buying sheep and fattening or breeding them for a few months before reselling them. He invests part of his profits in providing for his family (food, school fees, health care, shoes and clothing) and the rest in his business.

Dongota has been involved in this business for about 10 years. He buys his sheep at the local market and resells them at the same market. He is asking RMCR for a loan in order to expand his business. His dream is to be able to meet the family's expenses with the profits from his sales without having to sell grain or other goods.
