A loan of $775 helps to pay for pesticides for his cacao crop in order to increase production and do better at meeting family needs.

Eloundou Nga Eteme.'s story

ELOUNDOU is a 45-year-old man who is the father of seven living in a local village for years. A farmer, he has been managing his field of cacao for 24 years. Thanks to this business, he is able to meet family needs.

He wants to increase his production of cacao this year. To do so, he needs to start field maintenance work on time. It is already time to treat the cacao, but he has no money to pay for the maintenance products. This is why he is requesting a loan enabling him to purchase pesticides, such as Ridomil, Camida Gold, and Round Up. The money from selling his production will let him do better at meeting family needs.
