A loan of $575 helped a member to buy fertilizer.


Kotobi Group's story

The Kotobi group is part of the CKA cooperative of Afféry, a small town in eastern Côte d’Ivoire, located about two hours drive from Abidjan. The group is made up of four members. Kimou, a member of the group, is 36 years old. He has four people under his care in his household. He joined the CKA cooperative seven years ago and he owns two hectares (4.9 acres) of Rainforest Alliance and UTZ-certified cocoa, which means that he respects the standards and principles of sustainable farming. This loan will help him to buy fertilizer for his farming business, which will in turn allow him to increase his production and his earnings. With the remaining money, he wants to build a house.

In this group: Odi Ferdinand, Kimou, Anassin, Boni
