A loan of $3,650 helped a member to buy fertilizers and pesticides.

Progrès Group's story

The Progrès 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 12 members.

Jacques is 50 years of age. He is responsible for twelve people at home. He joined the Coopasm cooperative nine years ago, and his 2.5 hectares of cacao farmland 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 and to bolster his income.

With this additional revenue, he plans to build a house to take care of his family.

In this group: Jacques, Koné, Alain, Abou, Sidssaya Issa, Fousseni, François*, Yamba*, Manegbnoen, Pilete, Antoine
