A loan of $2,425 helps a member to buy some animals for resale with the goal of taking care of his family.


Benkadi Group's story

Forty-six years old, Founka is an animal raiser (of sheep and cattle), living in Mali. He lives with his wife together with his 8 dependent children of whom 3 go to school. He contracted with RMCR to finance his business of animal raising, which he has done for some years and represents his group at following covid-19 hygiene rules. Founka buys supplies in the neighbouring markets and resells his animals in the same markets after a time of maintenance and nourishment and veterinary care. Despite the living conditions of his surroundings, he always appreciates this work because he can manage a peaceful life with his family. Founka wants to expand this business alongside RMCR to better meet his family's needs and to build a permanent house.
