Benkadi Ii Group's story

N’kari is a 36-year-old Malian farmer. He is married and the father of five children, including one girl and one boy in school. His children's ages range from 2 to 11.

N’kari has been growing peppers for 8 years. He takes out loans from RMCR to purchase seeds, herbicides, and to pay for labor in his field. After farming in his field for eight months, the harvest is sold at local markets for a projected profit between 50,000 to 100,000 FCFA.

The profits will allow him to cover everyday family expenses including health care and his children's school fees. Because of COVID, he is alone in the photo to represent the group.
