Marie Georgette's story
Marie Georgette, 26, is married and has two children. She lives in her hometown, in a remote area. The family stays in the family home. Marie Georgette sells second-hand clothes, and her husband is employed in an agricultural cooperative. To increase her income, Marie Georgette also works in agriculture. The family plans to build their own home and the couple is working hard to raise the necessary funds. Marie Georgette joined Vahatra a year ago. She wants to expand her livestock farm and needs capital. She acquired the first loan for rice cultivation and finished her repayments. She has a stock of rice to guarantee food for several months. The next loan is needed to buy a cow and a hay cart to feed it. The milk production will increase their income and the family could strengthen their savings for the construction project. Marie Georgette is hoping for support from the lenders.
