A loan of $475 helps to buy a sprayer and some pesticides.

Justin's story

Justin is a young, 32-year-old man who is married and the father of six children. Four of his children attend school. He is a farmer and has owned a cocoa plantation in a local village for many years.

His cocoa plantation allows him to meet his family's needs. This is the period during which the plantation must be treated and, as usual, he is facing the same problem: a lack of liquid funds with which to buy the products on time and get a better yield. He also wants to avoid the loan sharks who take a large part of his crop. This is why he is requesting a loan so that he can buy a sprayer and some crop maintenance products for his plantation.

The money he makes from selling his crop will allow him to finish construction on his home and to expand his plantation.

Translated from French
