A loan of $200 helped to buy a tarpaulin.


Minsa's story

Minsa is a man of 59, the father of a family. After primary school, he specialized in growing cacao. He has been a farmer for 15 years in a local village where he essentially grows cacao. He would like to have a good harvest this year and to do that, he needs to apply maintenance products in a timely manner and avoid predatory lenders.

That is why he is asking for a loan that will permit him to buy some maintenance materials, for example a tarpaulin. This will grow his production and his sales. The money from the sales will permit him to expand his field and send his children to school.
