A loan of $450 helped growing corn and manioc (cassava).

Atsu's story

Atsu A. is 49 years old, married and father to one child. He lives as a farmer in Wome, a village situated around 112 kilometres from Kpaliné. He grows corn and manioc (cassava), etc which he then sells to the local people. These cereals and tubers are used to prepare food that does not need to be refrigerated. With this first loan from FECECAV, he would like to increase his production to be able to meet the needs of his customers next season. This will allow him to earn more money with which to provide for his family.
