Maminirina's story

Maminirina is 24 years old and married, and she has six children. Living in a working-class district, near the big market, she has been selling peanuts for two years and maintains a sales venue on a very busy road. Her earnings cover the day-to-day expenses of the family.

Maminirina joined VAHATRA to take out loans. This partnership is favorable to her. She benefits from loans allowing for more and more merchandise. She has built up savings with her profits and was able to build a wooden house for her family.

She would like to keep progressing. She has not yet acquired a good level of financial autonomy and is asking for the help of lenders for supplies. She needs this loan to pay for 277 kg of raw pistachios to sell after roasting and shelling them. She strives to invest seriously in her small business in order to improve the family income further. She feels that her family’s well-being will improve.
