but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy rams to resell in order to provide for his family.

Benkadi Group's story

Mama can be seen holding the ram. He is the president and representing the group in the photo due to COVID-19.

Mama is Malian, 61-years old, educated, married, and father to 8 children in his care. His wife is a housekeeper.

Mama is working with RMCR in order to best manage his livestock business. He makes his purchases from the surrounding markets and resells in those same markets. On occasion, Mama encounters a drop in sales in the market.

The profit he earns allows Mama to care for some of the household expenses such as the family's medical expenses and the children's school fees. Mama has a good reputation in the village.

In the future, Mama hopes to increase the size of his loan to buy several rams and earn more for his family.
