but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy seeds, fertilizer and pesticides to assure a good potato crop.

Viviane's story

Viviane is a 34 year old mother. She is married and has two young children. She lives in a rural village. She has a brick house.

For the past six years, she has been growing potatoes. She also runs a grocery store on a day-to-day basis. She recently joined Vahatra. The profits from the previous loan allowed her to meet the needs of her family. She is continuing on this path. She hopes to continue to increase her revenue.
