Benkadi Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase sheep to sell and meet her family's needs.

Benkadi Group's story

This lady holding the sheep by its horns is Djénèbou, who is representing her group due to Covid-19. She is a 39-year-old Malian and lives with her farmer husband in Mali. Djénèbou has seven children to look after, of whom three go to school.

Djénèbou has been working with RMCR for six years to contract loans with her fellow group members to fund their activities (rearing livestock, market gardening). She is very independent and buys her produce (seed and sheep) at local markets. She then sells her produce at the same markets to generate profit which allows her to provide her children with school supplies, school fees and clothing.

Djénèbou would like to help her children with their education and healthcare provision.
