Oikocredit and MOCA join forces to strengthen cocoa cooperatives in Côte d’Ivoire
Oikocredit and the Maximizing Opportunities in Cocoa Activity (MOCA) project have signed a memorandum of understanding to support the sustainable development of smallholder cocoa cooperatives in Côte d’Ivoire.
The collaboration aims to boost cooperatives’ entrepreneurial approach to cocoa farming through providing capacity building and access to appropriate financial services.
“We look forward to collaborating with MOCA on strengthening our support of Côte d’Ivoire’s cocoa cooperatives and furthering our work towards improving livelihoods for Ivorian smallholders,” said Hans Perk, Oikocredit’s Regional Director Africa.
Prior to formalising the collaboration, Oikocredit and MOCA held three regional workshops in February 2019.
