A loan of $700 helped a member buy fertilizer.

Raphaelkro Group's story

The Raphaelkro group is part of the CAAM cooperative which is located in Meagui, a small town in the south-west of Côte d'Ivoire, in the San Pedro area. The group consists of 5 people.

Patrice is 69 years old. He takes care of nine people in his home. He has been part of the CAAM cooperative for the past five years and owns 12 hectares (30 acres) of cocoa which are Rainforest Alliance and UTZ Certified, which means he complies with the principles and standards of sustainable agriculture.

Thanks to the loan, he will be able to buy fertilizer for his plantation. These products will enable him to increase his production and thereby increase his revenues.

With the extra money, he will buy corrugated sheets to cover his house.

In this group: Amani Patrice, Yao, Amani Achille, Koffi Pascal, Kouassi
