Producer, Community Member, Father
 

Georges Kouakou Kouassi is a producer at the COOP-CA-REFSI cocoa cooperative in the Koffikro section of Côte d’Ivoire.

"We have been certified for 5 years now," says Georges. "Thanks to our certification, we have had the opportunity to build a new school for our families by using Community Development Funds received through our partnership with Fair Trade USA."

Georges takes care of his family of twelve and looks forward to providing his children with opportunities to study.

"I want to send all of my children to school," he says. "They will be able to have great jobs in the future."
