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

A loan helped to buy seeds and fertilizer to grow potatoes, carrots, onions and other products to sell in the market.

Marie Jeanne's story

Marie Jeanne, 69, is married with six children — all of whom are independent. She lives in a neighbouring area of the town. Marie Jeanne is the owner of a concrete house. She is still active despite her age, and has been engaged in rice cultivation and selling a variety of vegetables for several years.

Her husband works in a private enterprise. Marie Jeanne is a good partner with Vahatra. She wishes to increase rice production and boost her output. She needs to strengthen her financial capital, and is therefore requesting the support of lenders to buy potatoes, carrots, onions, tomatoes, peppers, and other products to sell back on the market. In addition, she will also buy seeds, fertilizers, sanitary products, and pay for the labour involved in rice cultivation.

Marie Jeanne will invest the savings in her retirement as well as purchase land with the profits.
