Harimalala Rovatiana's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to pay for 3 truck trips to transport rice ban and to pay labor.

Harimalala Rovatiana's story

Herimalala, age 25, is married to a driver. The couple has one child who doesn't go to school yet. Herimalala's business consists in making and selling bricks. It is now production time in the area. The profitability of this business depends on the production volume, which in turns depends on the invested capital.

For this reason, she's seeking a loan to pay for labor and buy 3 truck trips to transport rice ban (required to make bricks). Her goal is to have enough capital for her business to become self-sufficient.
