Nimissa Group's story

Teneba is the one holding the daba (short-handled hoe) in the picture. She is a 46-year-old married woman with seven children. Five of her children attend school. Ténéba left school during the second cycle to get married. She lives in rural Mali with her peasant husband and her children. Ténéba calls upon RMCR to have the funds to pursue her agricultural activities. She dreams to ensure food self-sufficiency and financial independence for her family. She hopes support from the institution will enable her to achieve her dream. The funds Teneba received from RMCR will be fully invested in purchasing groundnut seeds and agricultural inputs. She has been growing groundnuts for the past seven years, and remains committed to this activity because of the profits. Profits generated by the business pays for her children's schooling, health costs and buyiing additional clothes for her family. She is hoping to attain profits of 175,000 CFA francs after harvest. Lack of rain and the increase of seed prices are problems faced by Teneba in her business.
