Anouanzé Group's story

The Anouanzé Group is part of the Coopajo cooperative. The group is from Dagadgi, a small village in the southwest of Côte d'Ivoire, located in the San Pedro region. This group has four members.

Jacques is 57 years of age. He is responsible for six people at home. For the past 29 years he has worked with cacao, and has 11 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.

In this group: Kouakou Jacques, Kouassi Jean-Baptiste, Kouakou, Koffi
