A loan of $2,250 helps a member to buy peanuts for resale in order to earn a revenue for his family.


Benkadi Group's story

The person with his hand on the bag of peanuts is Fousseyni. He is 46 years old, married and has nine children, all of whom are or have been in school. His business activity is stocking and reselling peanuts. He buys at the local markets and six months later resells at the same markets to earn a revenue.

Thanks to this revenue Fousseyni manages to provide for his family and pay for his children's schooling. He has been working with RMCR for four years. With his profit margins he plans to buy a peanut shelling machine to facilitate his work.
