A loan of $3,900 helps a member to buy cattle to resell in order to support his family.


Benkadi Group's story

Zoumana is the man who features the ram in the photo; he is 40 years old. In the photo he is alone is due to COVID-19. He lives in the rural area with his wife and his 6 children, including two girls in school, and 4 boys not in school. His wife is a housewife and she works in small business. He buys and sells his rams at fairs in his locality.
In view of the need, he requests a new loan to buy more rams for breeding in order to earn a forecast profit of 100,000F CFA which will allow him to pay for clothes and shoes for his children and their schooling.
Indeed Zoumana would like to go to large markets to earn more money in order to be financially independent.
