Sofoci 4 Group's story

The group "Sofoci 4" is part of the CPSL cooperative and is located in Meagui, a small town in southwestern Cote-d'Ivoire, in the Région de Bas-Sassandra, near Soubré. The group is composed of nine persons.

Boukary is 54 years old, and he is a member of the group "Sofoci 4". He takes care of seven persons at home. For four years, he has been part of the CPSL cooperative. He has three hectares of cocoa in the process of a Rain Forest Alliance/UTZ double certification, which means he respects the principles and standards of sustainable agriculture.

Thanks to this loan, he is going to be able to purchase manure and pesticides for his plantation. These products will enable him to augment his production and thus to increase his revenues.

With the additional money, he wants to build a house for his family.

In this group: Boukary, Daouda, Youssouffou, Maliki, Guetouinde, Abdoulassi*, Gomdegma, Gauthier Narcisse, Moussa
