N'guessankro Group's story

The group N'Guessankro belongs to the CAAM cooperative located in Meagui, a small town in the southwest of Ivory Coast, in the region of San Pedro. The group has 3 members.

Thérèse is 69 years old and she has 7 dependents under her roof. She has been with CAAM for 8 years, and she has 30 hectares of cacao farmland certified by the Rainforest Alliance, which means that she adheres to the principles and standards of sustainable agriculture.

She will use this loan to buy fertilizers for her cacao plantation. This will allow her to increase production and to bolster her income.

She wants to use the additional revenue to support her grandchildren’s education.
