Jean de Dieu Bizimana | coffee plantation | € 1000

The loan has been provided to him a day before we visit Jean de Dieu. So we ask him how he is planning to invest the money. Jean de Dieu signed up fo a €1000 loan. His goal is to expand his plantation from 300 to 900 coffee trees.

Young entrepreneur, good coffee

Two things stand out about Jean and his plantation. He is 35 and that makes him a relatively young entrepreneur. What’s more, the picture below is proof of a healthy plantation. This is something that stands out for this region in general. The knowledge level here seems to be higher than in some of the other areas.

Monthly income: € 250,-

There is no doubt that Jean is going to pay back the loan. His monthly income is € 250 which comes from his shop which is free of debt. His monthly income enables him to pay off the loan within a year, right after the next harvest. Let see if he can make this happen!
