Benkadi Group's story

Sidi is the man standing in the middle of the photo holding a sac of salt. He is Malian, 41 years old, married, and a father of four children. His eldest child is 12 years old, and four of the children go to school. His wife is a strong woman who works in small-scale commerce. Sidi cannot read because he didn't have the chance to go to school. Sidi is a courageous man and is ambitious with his work. He sells salt and cement. Because he does not have the means to develop his business, he joined the micro-finance institution so he could buy bags of salt and cement to resell. He procures his goods from the local market fairs and then makes his sales from different local market fairs. Sidi can earn a projected 70,000 francs each month. These earnings will allow him to support his family's needs, especially his children's school and health needs.
