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

A loan helped to buy the necesssary tools for a crop of potatoes.

Volahanta's story

Volahanta is 33 years old and lives in a rural village with her spouse and their three children. The family lives in a house made of beaten earth.

Volahanta and her husband are farmers. They also raise livestock. Their work supports their family. Volahanta partnered with Vahatra in order to take out loans and increase their financial capital. This helps her to invest in their work more, primarily with expanding their crops of potatoes, which has been a staple of their work for over 20 years. With the revenue from her last loan, Volahanta was able to purchase a cow.

With this new loan, Volahanta plans to purchase seeds and fertilizer in order to grow a new crop. This will allow her to expand the area of their crops. Their harvest will be sold at the local market.

Volahanta hopes to purchase a cart with their profits.
