Binkadi 1 Group's story

The group "Binkadi 1" is part of the cooperative COOBAD and is located in Agboville, a town in eastern Cote d'Ivoire and about two hour's drive from Abidjan. The group is composed of six persons.

Rene is 35 years old, and he is a member of the group Binkadi 1. He takes care of three persons at home. He has been a part of the cooperative COOBAD for four years, and he has 7 hectares of cocoa with Rainforest Alliance and UTZ certification, which means he respects the principles and standards of sustainable agriculture.

Thanks to loans, he is going to be able to purchase some fertilizers for his plantation. These products will enable him to augment his production and thus to increase his revenues.

With the additional money, he wants to raise pigs.
