Laurent's story

Laurent is a 32-year-old young man and father of a family. He has lived in a nearby village for years and works as a farmer. He has managed his cacao field for years, which enables him to support his family. Laurent wants to increase his cacao crop this year. To do this he will need to start treating the field in time, and the season is already here. However, he does not have the money to buy the products he needs. He is seeking a loan to be able to meet this challenge. The earnings from the sale of his crops will allow him to better meet his family’s needs.
