Pascal's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase a mobile phone, solar charging set and weighing scale so that he may provide vital farming information to his community.
Pascal is 34 years old. He is married and has two children. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow maize, beans and coffee. They also have cows and pigs. Pascal looks forward to becoming a Community Knowledge Worker (CKW). As a CKW he will use the materials in his business-in-a-box (smartphone, solar charging set and weighing scale) to disseminate vital agricultural information to the other members of his village, helping them to improve their crop yields and to increase their incomes. With the additional money that he will earn as a CKW, Pascal will invest in his farm. His biggest dream is to be able to purchase more land. He looks forward to helping those in his community to transform their lives and to lift themselves out of poverty.
