A loan of $600 helped to buy agricultural inputs for his cacao plantation.


Ernest's story

Ernest is a 49- year old man. He is in a relationship and has four children ranging from two to 12 years of age. All of his children are in school. After having attended school, Ernest decided to go into agriculture thanks to the cacao plantation he has inherited from relatives. Thanks to this plantation he supports his family.

Ernest would like to have a higher yield this year; to do so, it is necessary to treat his soil in a timely fashion. Thus he is seeking a loan to buy agricultural inputs. His revenues will help him develop his plantation as well as better provide for his family’s needs.
