Petit Grabo 1 Group's story

"Petit Grabo 1" is a group which is part of the Coopagui cooperative of Guiroutou, a small village located in southwestern Côte d’Ivoire in the region of San Pedro. The group comprises 14 members.

Bazom is 45 years old. He takes care of 10 people in his household. He joined the Coopagui cooperative one year ago and he has 4 hectares (9.88 acres) of land on which he grows cocoa which is UTZ and Rain Forest Alliance certified, which means that Bazom is respecting the standards and principles of sustainable farming.
