Nicholas's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy fertilizer, fungicides and insecticides for his cocoa farm.

Nicholas's story

Nicholas is a hard-working family man, with a sweet wife and six children. He is 44 years old. He has been farming cocoa for 12 good years at Adabokrom.

Nicholas wants to apply for a loan to buy fertilizer, fungicides and insecticides. He wants to improve his harvest, so he can pay his children’s school fees, and also to purchase a sewing machine for his personal work.

He is very confident in his ability to repay the loan. Nicholas thanks you in advance for your generosity!
