A loan of $750 helped to buy agricultural inputs.


Policarpe's story

Policarpe is a 50 year old single man and father of eight children between the ages of eight and 28. He has had a cocoa plantation for 50 years in a village nearby, inherited from his parents. He is asking for a loan to buy phytosanitary products and other maintenance products which will allow him to improve the quality of his production. The profits from this will be reinvested into his plantation. His goal is to solve his family problems and buy other agricultural equipment.
