A loan of $700 helped a member to purchase pesticides.


Petit Guiglo Group's story

The group "Petit Guiglo" is part of the cooperative "Coopagui" and is located in Guiroutou, a small village in southwestern Cote d'Ivoire, in Région de San Pedro. The group is composed of six persons.

Burkawendin is 60 years old. He takes care of fourteen persons at home. He has been part of the Coopagui cooperative for a year, and he has nine hectares of cocoa with UTZ and Rain Forest Alliance certification, which means he respects the principles and standards of sustainable agriculture.

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

With the additional money, he would like to provide schooling for the children he has responsibility for.

In this group: Sidikolgueba Marou, Burkawendin, Tibile, Rakiswilguiri Issaka, Arjouma, Ouambi Moussa
