Youkou 2 Group's story

The group Youkou 2 is part of the Coopagui cooperative. It is located in Guiroutou, a small village in the southwest of Ivory Coast, in the region of San Pedro. The group has 14 members.

Cédric, age 24, is a young cacao farmer. He has been with Coopagui for two years, and his three hectares of cacao farmland are certified by UTZ and by the Rainforest Alliance, which means that he adheres to the principles and regulations of sustainable agriculture.

He plans to use this loan to buy pesticides for his cacao plantation. This will allow him to increase production and to bolster his income.

He wants to use the additional revenue to build a new house.

In this group: Rasmane, Sokpire, Tilimine, N'guessan Jean, Aboubacar, Amani Cédric, Kouamé, Hinntouret, Lewonin, Wagate, Ledo, Djekite, Tilboure, Abdoulaye*
