I Made Mekir's story

The drop in vanilla price impacted a lot of vanilla farmer, including I Made Mekir. For the next farming season I Made Mekir is advised by DINARI foundation to switch to cacao. Cacao is the favorite plan at the moment. It is easy to grow and the price is stabile.

I Made Mekir is going to use the new loan to grow cacao.He will replace all of his vanilla with cacao.
