A loan of $1,225 helps a member to buy animals for resale in order to support her family.


Bendai Group's story

Farima is 39 years old. She is married and has one child. She raises livestock (sheep) and grows peanuts during the winter season. Her RMCR loan enabled her to buy more rams and livestock feed to expand her business. Assisted by her husband, who is a farmer, she contributes a lot to helping her husband take care of the family, and especially of the children's well-being. The only obstacle currently in Farima's way is low sales and animal attrition. Her wish for the future is the best for her children.
