A loan helped to buy the necessary inputs for growing potatoes.

Justin's story

Justin is a 33-year-old man, who is married with four children. The family lives in a rural village, which is prone to flooding. Justin is a farmer and also raises animals. He earns enough to provide for his family's most significant needs, including food, the children's schooling and others. However, he would like to make further headway. He has decided to extend his activities and needs financial capital.

He joined Vahatra and took out a loan for potato farming. The family owns farming land and needs funds to farm it. Justin has been able to cover food costs with the profits from his potato farming and has also been able to start putting a little money in his savings, which he plans to boost. He intends to buy a wheelbarrow for transportation.

This next loan will again help him to buy potato seeds, fertilizers and phytosanitary products. He hopes for lender support. The harvest will be delivered to collectors.
