Fanjanihaina Rose Isabelle's story

Isabelle is 46 years old. She is married to a gardener. They have three children who are all in education. Since 2015, Isabelle has been rearing dairy cows. This is a business she inherited from her parents. With the aim of further developing this unit, she has requested a loan to be able to buy a dairy cow. Her goal is to have a maximum quantity of milk from this animal which will then improve her living conditions using the profits from the business.
