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 inputs for her groundnut farming activity.

Benkadi Group's story

Mariam is married with three children aged 2 to 10 years old, two of whom go to school. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, she is alone in the photo, holding groundnut seeds and a hoe over her shoulder. She has been growing groundnuts for over five years so as not to be completely dependent on her husband, and to be able to provide for her children. She has the full support of her husband in conducting this activity.

She partners with RMCR to buy fertilizers and herbicides for her groundnut field in order to get a better yield, both in quantity and quality. She buys and sells at public markets and makes a monthly profit of 12,500F CFA.

She plans to buy cattle for her children in the future.
