Nontgtaba Sainte Marie Group's story

The Nontgtaba Sainte Marie 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 10 members.

Hermane is 42 years of age. He is married, and is responsible for five people at home. For the past 13 years he has worked with cacao, and has 4.5 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 would like to start a new business raising cattle.
