The aim of PRO-PLANTEURS is to professionalise 20,000 cocoa-producing farms and their organisations in the south of Côte d'Ivoire in order to improve the living conditions of the families through an increase in income and a balanced diet.

Mamadou Zie Bamba, director of one of the cooperatives of the project, confirms the success. Through training, the entire management and in particular the accounting of his organisation could be significantly improved.
