A loan of $1,325 helped a member to buy chemical fertilizers and to pay for labor.

Good Rice Group's story

Ananie belongs to the Good Rice group. He is 56 years old and married with nine children ranging from 10 to 26 years old; all nine of the children have been to or are at school. He has one other dependent (apart from his children). He himself has six years of secondary education.

Ananie is a rice farmer. This is his second loan cycle with ACB and he is going to use his loan to buy chemical fertilizers and to pay for labor.

His strategy for growing his business is to ask for further loans to expand his faming activities. In the next few years Ananie would like to become a more significant rice producer in his region. With the profits he makes, he is planning to pay his children's schooling and medical expenses.

In this group: Lasarde, Leonard, Immaculée, Laurence, Ananie, Jean, Emmanuel, Anicet
