Noéline's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy 2 pigs, feed, and chemical fertilizers to resell.

Noéline's story

Noéline, 41 years old, is separated. She takes care of her two children on her own. She lives in a rural village where she sells chemical fertilizers and also raises pigs. She fights to have a sufficient income because she wants to ensure the wellbeing of her children.

Noéline takes out loans and is a partner of Vahatra. The loans have allowed her to expand her business activities. She earns more profit and can deposit savings for future projects, such as buying land. Noéline used the last loan for her business.

Currently, she is asking lenders to help her purchase two pigs to fatten, feed to nourish them, and also chemical fertilizers to stock her sales stand. She hopes to earn enough profit, and plans to boost her savings.
