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

A loan helped to pay for pigs, fodder, and the farm inputs needed for growing potatoes.

Clarisse's story

Clarisse, aged 32, is a married woman. The couple have three children. A sociable and active person, she is dedicated to her work raising livestock and growing crops. She lives in a rural village.

She works with Vahatra and thus has been able to expand her business progressively through this partnership. Her income has improved. Aware of this progress, she is again ready and willing to take out another loan and is turning to lenders.

This loan will help her in raising pigs and growing potatoes. She plans to purchase 2 pigs to fatten, some fodder, and also seeds and fertilizer. She will resell her produce at the local market. Her wish is to invest in her pig farming next.
