Sofoci 2 Group's story

Sofoci 2 Group is part of the cooperative CPSL. It is located in Meagui, a small town in southwestern Côte d'Ivoire, in Bas-Sassandra Region and close to Soubré.

The group has eight members. Moussa, age 28, is one of them. He's been a member of CPSL for four years, and has three hectares of cocoa in the process of being certified by both Rain Forest Alliance and UTZ, which means he respects the principles and standards of sustainable agriculture.

Thanks to this loan, he will be able to buy fertilizers and pesticides for his plantation. These products will enable him to increase his production and his income.

With the additional money, he would like to open a convenience store in his village.

In this group: Amoin Florence, Amadou, Louagalo*, Salam, Issa, Boureima, Moussa, Inoussa
