Michelkro Group's story

Michelkro Group is part of the Coobadi Cooperative, and is located in Divo, a small town in central Côte d'Ivoire, about two hours from Abidjan.

The group is made up of four people. Oumar, age 45, is one of them. He takes care of ten people in his household. For two years, he's been a member of Coobadi Cooperative. He owns four hectares of cocoa.

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

With the extra money, he wants to build a family courtyard, send all his children to school, and continue to put fertilizers in his field.

In this group: Seydou, Koffi , Kouassi Albert, Oumar
