Siaka Coulibaly, pictured above, is a member of the [Mennonite] Church of Kangala in Burkina Faso. He received a micro-loan of $150 000 francs ($322 CDN) from Mennonite Church Canada. With this money he was able to buy cashew nuts and cereal grains, which he re-sold at a profit. The profits allowed him to expand his business and grow sweet potatoes, using the shoots to re-plant the field in preparation for another crop cycle. With the added profits from selling sweet potatoes, his business continued to grow. His most recent potato harvest filled a 7 ton truck 2 ½ times.
