Barnabe's story

Barnabe is a 32 year old man and father of four children. The youngest is 2 and the oldest is 9 years old. Three go to school. After his primary studies he specialized in growing cocoa. He lives in a local village and has worked a 2 hectare cocoa plantation for 13 years. It is a field inherited from his parents and he wants to make good use of it. He would like good production this year and to do that he has to apply maintenance products at the right time and avoid the moneylenders. For this reason he is requesting a loan that will allow him to buy fungicides. This will increase his production and his sales. The money earned from his sales will allow him to expand his fields and improve his children's living conditions.
