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


Marie's story

Marie is 44 years old. She lives in a couple and has 7 children who are all independent. She lives in a rural village with her partner. The couple farm livestock and produce.

Marie is a good partner of Vahatra's. She takes out loans to serve as working capital. Since her partnership with Vahatra, Marie has made progress with her business activities. The family income has gone up. She used the previous loan to buy ducks. She used the profits she earned from the sale of the birds to buy pigs and to build her savings.

The following loan will be used for rice farming. She will buy seeds, fertiliser, and phytosanitary products. A large part of the harvest will be used to feed the family during the year to come, but she will sell the rest so that she can cover basic expenditures. She is planning to buy a dairy cow.
