A loan of $950 helps to buy a wheelbarrow, boots, a sprayer, a suit, and some pesticides.

Liboire's story

Liboire is a 50-year-old man who is married and the father of nine children, all of whom attend school. After completing his primary education, he decided to devote himself to the cocoa plantation he inherited from his father.

It is thanks to this plantation that he is able to meet the needs of his large family. Therefore he puts all of his energy into maintaining it and, this time, he hopes to produce a bigger crop. In order to do this, he needs to get crop maintenance products in time to avoid problems with insects and plant disease, and to be able to clear the land. This is why he is requesting a loan so that he can buy a wheelbarrow, boots, a sprayer, a suit, and some fungicides on time, and avoid the loan sharks who often take a large part of his crop.

The money he makes from his sales will allow him to expand his plantation, to pay for his children's education, and to meet the needs of his family.

Translated from French
