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

A loan helped to buy three piglets to raise and fatten.

Elysette's story

Elysette is 36 and lives with her partner in a brick house on the edge of town. She has been raising pigs for 5 years. The couple also sells used shoes to support their daily living.

She has joined Vahatra in order to take loans. This will be good for her. She bought a television screen from her last loan.

She needs this loan to expand her pig raising business and raise her income. This time she will buy three piglets to raise and fatten. They will then be sold to the local butchery. The profits made will be used to solidify her working capital.
