Joseph's story

Joseph is 57 years old, married, and the father of nine children, ranging from ages 8 to 39. Six of his children go to school. He owns a 25-year-old cocoa plantation in a nearby village and he is taking a loan to buy some plant-protection products and improve the quality of his production. He will use his profits to achieve some of his goals (improve his living conditions and replace some of his old cocoa plant with young ones).
