A loan of $775 helps to buy insecticides and fungicides.


Francois's story

François is a 41 year old married man and father of four children. Two of his children are in school. He has a 27-year old cacao field inherited from his parents in his village.

He is requesting a loan to buy fungicides and insecticides to maintain his field and increase his production.

So, with the money from the sales, he will be able to improve the quality of his produce, save money, build a house, and assure his children's schooling.
