Joshua's story

Joshua is 45 years old and has been farming cacao in Ofoase for the past 20 years. He needs a loan to buy inputs for his cacao farm such as fertilizer, pesticides, and herbicides. Joshua also wants to pay the laborers who work in his fields.

Joshua and his wife want to make sure that their 10 children receive a good education and have good lives. He plans to use the profits from his cacao harvest to pay his children’s school fees.
