Benkadi Group's story

Oumou is representing the group n the photo because of COVID-19. She is a 50 year old Malian, married and the mother of five children. Two of them are girls and they all go to school. They are aged between 9 and 13 years of age. She is unique in her style due to her devotion to raising animals and she wants to manage her business well. She has had difficulties with financing and on learning about the Kiva program and it's importance she has made a request to buy more sheep and goats. She stocks up in rural areas and after having cared for her sheep and goats resells them at the local markets at good prices. This allows her to support her husband with the family expenses.
