A loan of $400 helps to buy boots and fungicides.


Xavier Aime's story

Xavier is a young man of 39. He is married with six children, of whom four still attend school. After his schooling, he became a farmer, and has been running his cacao plantation for over 15 years. This is how he provides for his family. He would like to increase his production this year and to do so he needs to clear the land, and apply maintenance products without delay. However, at the present time, he does not have the necessary funds. As he does not wish to resort to moneylenders who in the end, take part of his production and leave him penniless as usual, he requests a loan to buy boots and fungicides such as folivert, lamina, piriforme and fongistar. This will increase his production.
