A loan of $400 helps to pay for a sprayer and pesticides for his cacao crop in order to increase production and cover his children's schooling costs.

Joseph's story

JOSEPH is a 52-year-old man who is the father of five living for years with his family in a local village. He has been managing his field of cacao for years. Inherited from his family, the field allows him meet family needs.

At this time of year, he has difficulties maintaining his field. This can lead to a drop in production and prevent him from taking good care of his family. This is why he is requesting this loan enabling him to maintain his field better with crop maintenance products (sprayer, boots, Lamida Gold, Folivert, machete, file, Fongisar, face mask) that he will purchase on time. His production will increase and his sales too. Thus, he will be able to save money, establish another plantation, and pay for his children’s schooling.
