Relwinde Group's story

The Relwinde Group is part of the Coopasm cooperative. The group is from Doba, a small village in the southwest of Côte d'Ivoire, located in the San Pedro region. This group has six members.

Martin Soamba is 42 years of age. He is married, and is responsible for five people at home. For the past 17 years he has worked with cacao, and has three hectares of cacao farmland which are certified by the Rainforest Alliance. This means that he adheres to the principles and regulations of sustainable agriculture.

With this loan, he will be able to buy fertilizers and pesticides for his cacao plantation. These items will allow him to increase production, as well as increasing his income. With the additional money he receives, he plans to pay for his children's education.
