A loan of $1,125 helped a member to buy fertilizer.

Agbodji Group's story

The Agbodji group is part of the CKA cooperative of Afféry, a small town in eastern Côte d’Ivoire, located about two hours drive from Abidjan. The group is made up of eight members.

Claude, a member of the group, is 46 years old. He has seven people under his care in his household. He joined the CKA cooperative six years ago and he owns 5.2 hectares (12.8 acres) of Rainforest Alliance and UTZ-certified cocoa, which means that he respects the standards and principles of sustainable farming.

This loan will help him to buy fertilizers for his farming business, which will in turn allow him to increase his production and his earnings.

With the remaining money, he wants to build a house.

In this group: Ikpé Nicolas, Kouamé Claude, Allépo Claude, Assamoi Laurent, Adiko Claude, Dingui Etienne, Ollochi Juliette, Hilaire
