Alexandre A., age 35, lives in Agbanakin with his whole family. He was orphaned very early on, when his father died. To take over the responsibilities for his younger brothers, he started farming, especially sugar cane. Today, he has 10 years worth of experience in this domain and has reached a production level that proves his mastery of the business. He now plans on growing crops in the off-season to meet market demands in his area. Previous loans allowed him to grow his operation and to improve his crop yields through the use of herbicides. Presently, the procurement of selected cuttings and the purchase of a motorized irrigation pump are his concerns for which he is requesting a loan of $950. He can then increase his production. Accomplishing these goals will offer him a degree of financial stability that will allow his family to thrive and achieve its potential.

Agé de 35 ans, Monsieur A. Alexandre est domicilié à Agbanakin avec toute sa famille. Devenu très tôt orphelin de père, et pour prendre en charge ses frères cadets, il s’est lancé dans l’agriculture et spécialement la culture de canne à sucre. Aujourd’hui, il a une expérience de 10 ans dans le domaine et a atteint un niveau de production dont il n’a plus la maîtrise. Il projette faire des cultures de contre saison afin de satisfaire toutes les demandes sur le marché de la localité. Les crédits précédents lui ont permis d’élargir son exploitation et d’améliorer le rendement par les traitements phytosanitaires.

Aujourd’hui, l’approvisionnement en boutures sélectionnées et l’achat d’une motopompe sont ses préoccupations pour lesquelles il sollicite un montant de $950 en vue d'accroître sa production. La réalisation de ce projet lui offrira une stabilité financière qui permettra à sa famille de s’épanouir.
