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

A loan helped to buy inputs for his cacao farm.

Patrick's story

Patrick is 55 years old, married, and has four children. He has been a cacao farmer in Mensakrom for the past 14 years. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy inputs for his cacao farm such as fertilizer, pesticides, and herbicides.

Patrick wants to make sure his children have a good education and lead good lives. He will use the profits from his cacao harvest to pay his children’s school fees and to provide for the needs of his family.

He is very grateful for the support from the lenders!
