A loan of $300 helps to buy fungicide.


Sebastien's story

SEBASTIEN is a young, 40-year-old man with no children, but who has three people in his care. He has been living in a local village for years with his family and he has been cacao farming. During this time of year, he has difficulties maintaining his field, which causes a lack of funds, and the moneylenders take advantage of his being overburdened with debt and thus take a good part of his production. This prevents him from saving and taking care of his family. This is why he is seeking this loan, which will allow him to better maintain his field with maintenance products like Plantines, Plantima, and Monchamp, which he will buy in time to augment his production and sales. Thanks to this, he will be able to save, create another plantation, and start his own family in the near future.
