Claudette's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy the supplies necessary to grow potatoes.
Claudette is 35 years old; she is married with three dependent children. She lives in the country, in a house that she owns that is still of beaten earth. She has been growing potatoes for roughly seven years. She also has a small food stall in the day to day. Her husband, however, is a day laborer. Claudette has joined Vahatra to take out loans. She expects to increase the yield of her crops. Her clients also require good quality products. She needs the lenders' support to buy 160 kg of seed, fertilizer, and phytosanitary products to improve the potato harvest. She hopes to make enough profit to buy a zebu (humpbacked cow).
