Rasamisaona's story

Rasamisaona, aged 28, is divorced, and he lives in a rural village with his child. He works growing crops and raising livestock to earn money. He owns a solid house and arable land.

Wanting to make progress, earn enough income, and have a lot things, he decided to take out loans and expand his businesses, so as to boost revenues. He joined Vahatra and used the previous loan for growing potatoes. With the earnings, he got a pig and some chickens.

He needs the next loan to continue growing potatoes. He will buy seeds and fertilizer and will pay for manual labor. His hope is to have the support of lenders. His plans include buying an ox with his earnings.
