Rijaharivelo's story

Rijaharivelo is an active and responsible father of a family. He is 31 and has two children. His specialty is brick-making, which has been his trade for seven years. To make his bricks, he pays workers to help him. In addition, he also buys bricks ready to be dried and then resold. Customers come to his home to buy bricks or to order them. Most recently, he obtained a sow with his profits.

He has been working with VAHATRA for a year. This has been beneficial for him. He was able to increase production. He needs this loan to pay the workers, who are going to make 25,000 bricks for him. He is also going to pay for fuel to dry them. Now that the demand is high, he is confident of being able to sell his products. His goal is to improve his family’s well-being.
