A loan of $625 helped to buy seeds and fertilizer for farming.


Jean Marie's story

Monsieur Jean-Marie has been working in agriculture for years. He is married and the father of a family. He has taken a course in agriculture: how to sow, cultivate, harvest and care for his yield. He has put the knowledge he gained into practice and it has been fruitful. Presently, he is asking for a loan of 300,000 f to buy seeds and fertilizer for his crops. He is very active, beginning his day at 8 am and ending work at 6 pm. In order to make better use of his knowledge, he pays two persons to help him with his work so that he can diversify his produce and services. Jean-Marie has plans to buy a mill to grind millet as a way to diversify his business and also to acquire a thresher to ease his work.
