A loan of $300 helps to buy pesticides.

Rigobert's story

Rigobert is a young, 38-year-old man who is married and the father of 4 children who attend school. He has been living in a local village for years with his family, and he has specialised in growing cocoa.

During this time of year, he has difficulties maintaining his fields due to a lack of financial liquidity, and the loan sharks take advantage of his situation by overloading him with debt, as well as taking a large part of his production. This prevents him from being able to save any money and from taking good care of his family.

This is why he is requesting this loan, which will allow him to better take care of his field thanks to the crop maintenance products (Roundup, Supergro, Nordox, Botte, and combinations) which he will buy on time and will enable him to increase his production and, therefore, his sales. Thanks to this, he will be able to save some money, start another plantation and build in the near future.

Translated from French

This loan is special because:

It gives farmers access to crucial financing when they need it the most.
