Comite Des Jeunes Progressistes Pour L’Avancement's story

COJEPAB is a group of young and notable men from different localities in the community of Boucan Carre who joined together on March 5, 2005. The purpose of the request is to facilitate farmers in the community of Pajes to get access to seeds and products in the planting season. Michelet, the coordinator pictured with the other members, noted many problems in different sectors such as agriculture, health, and education. Then, with a group of farmers, he started working to find a solution for these issues. Together they executed some projects to each member's satisfaction and they built a community school, an agricultural input store, fixed a road, and an irrigation system. The loan from Zafen will enable the organization to purchase a large quantity of seeds to be sold to peasants in the community. This will allow farmers to acquire seeds at an affordable price when prices have a tendency to double during the planting season.
