Marc's story

Marc is 45 years of age. He is married, and is responsible for six people at home. For the past 30 years he has worked with cacao, and has 10 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 build a house to take care of his family.
