A loan of $475 helped to purchase fungicides and herbicides for their plantation.

Pierre Claude's story

Pierre Claude is a 25-year-old married father to two children who both currently attend school. After completing his secondary education, he decided to specialize in agriculture, particularly cocoa plantations.

He would like to increase his production this year in order to be able to pay his children's school fees, to purchase a motorbike to make it easier for him to reach his fields and also to expand his plot of land. To do this, he needs to use field maintenance products before it's too late.

Since he doesn't have enough money and he wants to avoid money-lenders taking a sizable portion of his production, he is requesting this loan to purchase herbicides and fungicides. This will allow him to increase his production, thereby allowing him to achieve his goals.

This loan is special because:

It gives farmers access to crucial financing when they need it the most.
