A loan helped to buy pigs, feed, and potato seeds.

Justine's story

Justine is 52 years old. She is a widow. She has 5 children, 4 of whom are already independent. She farms produce and livestock. She raises pigs and grows seasonal crops.

She takes out loans from Vahatra to serve as working capital. She has been successful with her previous loans. She makes sure to build her savings so that she can later be financially independent, and she also carries out projects to improve her family's daily life. She used her previous loan to farm rice and raise pigs. The profits she earned were used to finish off the construction of the family home.

The following loan will be used to farm potatoes and to continue raising pigs. She wants to buy 2 pigs, 720 kilos of feed, and 100 kilos of seeds. She sells her products at the local market. She will save her profits for future projects.
