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

A loan helped to buy the items necessary for potato farming.

Berthine's story

Berthine is 52 years old. She has six children who are all on their own. Her family lives in a rural village. Berthine is active in farming. Their land is suitable for potato farming, which she has been doing for 30 years. The harvest is delivered to collectors. Her spouse pulls a cart.

Berthine is on her second loan. She is a borrower with Vahatra. The loans allow her to purchase more of the items needed for farming and she can expand the area to be cultivated. She plans to buy some land once she has been able to save enough money.

She needs this loan to buy potato seeds, fertilizer, and plant protection products.

She used the income earned from the last loan to add to her capital. She also has been able to put away some money in savings that she hopes to add to in order to accomplish her goal. She is hopeful for lenders' support.
