Manana is from the small village of Sachkhere district. She is 48 years old and lives with her husband, two daughters, a son, a daughter-in-law, a mother-in-law and a granddaughter. The elder daughter works as a teacher at the local school and gets a monthly salary. Manana’s husband and son are tractor drivers and serve local farmers to get a service fee for the work. The family is involved in an agricultural business. In particular, they run a small dairy farm of two calves and two milk cows, whose milk is used for dairy production. Manana produces cheese, which she sells at the local market. In addition, they grow haricots and maize on family-owned land. Part of the harvested produce is sold at the local open market, and the rest is used for the family's needs. Manana works hard, but the family still doesn’t have enough income to save and use to improve their living conditions.
Manana has applied for this loan to increase the number of cows and renovate her house. With the requested loan she plans to purchase an additional milk cow. This will allow her to produce more milk from her dairy and increase her sales, which provide her main income. The rest of the money will be used for house renovation. Manana will purchase construction materials and repair the house, which is old and damaged. This will give her an opportunity to improve her family's living conditions. Manana awaits your support.
