Djapadji 2 Group's story

This Djapadji 2 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. The group has three members.

Bernard is 66 years of age and is part of the Djapadji 2 group. He is responsible for seven people at home. For the past 33 years he has worked with cacao, and has seven hectares of cacao farmland which are Rainforest Alliance certified. This means that they adhere to the principles and regulations of sustainable agriculture. Thanks to this loan, he will be able to buy fertilizers and pesticides for his cacao plantation. These items will allow him to increase his production, as well as to increase his income. With the additional money, he wants to pay for his children's education.
