Mamisoa's story

Mamisoa, 54 years old, has had a rice paddy for a dozen years. She also raises livestock. She lives in a rural village with her husband and their four children. She takes out loans with Vahatra. She uses the loans to expand her businesses. The previous loan was used for raising pigs. She bought several chickens with the profits. She needs this loan for her rice paddy. She needs to buy enough seed, fertilizer, and phytosanitary products. Part of the loan will be used to pay the salaries of laborers. The majority of the crop will be for sale but she will keep some of it for food. Mamisoa wants to become financially independent.
