Benkadi Group's story

Fanta is the woman presenting the ram in the photograph. She is courageous and very serious. She is a member of the Benkadi Group, made up of women who raise sheep. Fanta is 26 years old from Sodongara, Mali where she has lived since birth. She is married to a farmer. Fanta has three children, ages 4-12, one of whom is in school. She never went to school. For the past five years she has raised sheep to take charge and support her husband with financial support. She purchases supplies at the local market in Koulogo, where she also makes her sales.

Fanta is an former client of RMCR who has already received a loan from the institution, credit which she paid back well. She is asking for a second loan from RMCR to strengthen her business, to buy more sheep in order to make more profit. She wants to meet her family's needs, specifically school fees, medical expenses, and clothing for her children.
