A loan of $775 helps to pay for fungicides and herbicides for his cacao crop, improve production, expand his plantation, and better his family's living conditions.

Marcellin's story

Marcellin is a 29-year-old man who is married and the father of five children, who are still in school. For years, he has been living in a village with his family and growing crops. After his schooling, he became specialized in growing cacao. Thanks to this business, he is meeting family needs.

He would like to do better maintaining his plantation this year, so as to have good production. This is why he is requesting a loan enabling him to purchase crop maintenance products (fungicide and herbicides) on time, thus improving his production. The money from selling his cacao will let him realize his plans, improve his family's living conditions, and expand his plantation.
