Jean Nicolas's story

His name is Jean Nicolas. He is married, has one child, and is 46 years old. He lives in the country with his family, where he has a house and arable land. He has been growing rice for 22 years. After each harvest, he sells his rice and saves some for his own food supply.

Jean Nicolas can meet his family's primary needs. To improve his income, he joined Vahatra to take out loans and expand his rice growing. His goal is to be able to save for his child's future. He wants to invest in his education and future studies.

He succeeded with his first loan and is seeking his next loan to buy fertilizer to grow rice and to pay for labor. He will increase the area he grows on so he can have a larger harvest. Jean Nicolas sells his products at his village's rice field. He hopes to have enough profits for his savings.
