A loan helped to buy a cow.

Elisabeth's story

Elisabeth is a 62-year-old woman, married with ten children. The family live in a rural village. Despite her age, Elisabeth is still working: she has a farm and raises cattle.

She decided to take loans to develop her cattle farming and chose to work with Vahatra. She has already benefited from two successive loans of increasing value. Most recently, she was able to buy a plot of land with her profits.

She has also been able to deposit savings in order to buy a dairy cow later. She needs this next loan to buy a cow and is hoping for lender support. She will resell the animal after fattening and use her profits to build up her savings.
