Francine's story

Francine, 64, is a married woman, and a mother of 6 children who are all independent. She has a pension, and lives in a semi-rural neighbourhood with her spouse and her grandchildren. The family owns a concrete home.

Despite her age, Francine is still active. She has also been managing cattle breeding for 40 years, and is a partner with Vahatra. Francine was able to take out a loan which was profitable. Previously, she was able to grow various crops in her field and she was also able to develop her pigsty with the profits.

Currently, Francine is in possession of a cow. She wants to strengthen the diet of her herd in order to improve milk production. She will buy feed to nourish the cow. Francine will resell the products to local buyers.

She intends to save profits in order to better ensure the future of her grandchildren.
