A loan of $375 helped to buy agricultural inputs.


Valere's story

Valere is a 25-year-old single man and father of two children, the youngest of whom is two and the oldest of whom is five. He is asking for a loan to improve the quality of the production of his 17-year-old cocoa plantation that he inherited from his parents in a nearby village by buying phytosanitary products. The profits from this will be saved because he has a goal to create other plantations and improve the living conditions of his family.
