A loan of $550 helped to buy fungicides, insecticides, weed killers, and spray.


David's story

David is a separated 62-year-old father of five, aged 4-10. One of his children attends school. He has a cacao plantation that he has been running for 20 years. This is how he takes care of his family. This year, he needs financing to buy farming inputs (to buy fungicides, insecticides, weed killers, and spray) for his plantation. This will augment not only his sales but it will also allow him to improve his family’s living conditions and extend his plantation.

This loan is special because:
