A loan helped to buy the necessary inputs for rice cultivation.


Emiliette's story

Emiliette is 67 years old and is married with seven children, all of whom are self-sufficient. She lives in a rural village and works as a farmer. She also rents out a house whose earnings supplement her income.

Emiliette remains active in spite of her age and she would like to have financial autonomy in her advanced years. Vahatra supports her business by offering loans. This time Emiliette is turning to lenders; she would like to cultivate rice and needs funding to buy the necessary inputs, including seeds and fertiliser, in addition to paying labour costs. She sells her products in her neighboring town. With the profits generated from this loan, she plans to renovate her house.
