Benkadi Group's story

Fakouma is a Malian livestock-raiser who is 38 years old. She is married and the mother of 7 children ranging in age from 1 to 13 years old, 5 of whom attend school. Her husband is a farmer. For the past 3 years, she has had a sheep-raising business. Since she left school in the 6th year of primary school, she borrows from RMCR in order to be able to purchase lots of sheep to raise and resell. She purchases sheep at the local markets. She resells sheep in surrounding markets. The profits generated by this activity allow her to cover her children's expenses (education, medical and clothing costs). Fakouma is the woman in the middle holding the ewe in her hand in the photo.
