Jean De La Croix's story

His name is Jean de la Croix. He is married and has 5 children, of whom 3 are independent. The family lives in a remote rural village where they own their own permanent home. He is a farmer, looks after livestock, and is also a talented mason. His wife sells vegetables. To develop his business, he needs more financial capital. He joined Vahatra to take out loans and his goal is to increase his profits. The family plans to build a house soon. He used his first loan for pig farming and was able to buy cement and planks of wood with his profits. The following loan will be used to grow tomatoes. He needs 70kg of chemical fertilisers, plant protection products and organic fertilisers. The family owns arable land, and the crops will be sold in town. The earnings will be used to buy more building materials.
