Raphael's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy products for the maintenance of his plantation.
Raphael is 61 years old and the father of a family. He is a farmer and works primarily on the cacao farm he inherited from his father. It is thanks to this field that he is able to meet his family’s needs, and he puts all his knowledge and energy toward maintaining it. He dreams of a better harvest. To that end he needs maintenance products to avoid insects and plant diseases, and he also must be able to clear the fields. This is why he is seeking this loan. Thanks to the loan, he will be able to buy himself fungicides and other maintenance products and will thus avoid the money lenders who often take advantage of him. The money earned from these sales will allow him to expand his plantation and meet his family’s needs.
