Ngono Ondobo.'s story

Ngono is a 55-year old man, married and the father of six children, all of whom are still in school. Ngono has been living in a village in the region with his family for years. He manages a cacao plantation he has inherited from relatives 15 years ago. In the current season, he has difficulties maintaining his soil, which can result in a lower yield and diminish his ability to provide for his family.

This is why Ngono is applying for a loan, which will allow him to better maintain his soil thanks to agricultural inputs (Sinomil, Supraxone) and supplies such as a pulverizer, boots, machetes, mask etc, which he will purchase in good time in order to increase his yield and thus his sales. Thanks to this he will be able to save, launch a new plantation and pay for his children's schooling.
