Back in May, Centre d’Appui et de Developpment Rural (CADRI), a community organization in Mirebalais, received a $8700 loan from Zafen. Their plan was to purchase a new corn and sorghum grinder so as to increase production and hire 8 additional staff members.
Recently, one of our Business Analysts checked in with them to see how they were doing.
As predicted, the new equipment allowed them to immediately increase production. The staff now includes an additional 8 members to their team: a FT manager, a PT marketing agent, a FT operator, and 5 PT winnowers. Additionally, they are on time with their loan repayments.
CADRI’s hope is to continue to grow the business and to expand their market.
