Benkadi Group's story

Fatoumata is a married woman and the mother of three children, of whom one is in school. Fatoumata is the one with a hand raised in the photo. She is 27, and her husband is a teacher. They live in Mali in a rural area.

For six years, she and her husband have been running a business raising sheep. She gets supplies from the area and resells her livestock there, too, after a few month when the time is right for a profit.

Her livestock business generates a profit of 20,000 francs a month. This amount lets her help her husband with realizing family plans. She has turned to RMCR to purchase more some livestock for her business.
