A loan helped to buy the required inputs for growing rice.

Désiré's story

Désiré, 39, is a micro-borrower. He joined Vahatra four years ago and started taking out small loans to serve as capital for farming. He strives to ensure the wellbeing of his wife and their four children.

Désiré wants to progress. He wants to have savings so that he can send his children to school in the long term. He wants his children to have a better future.

Since the partnership with Vahatra, he has been able to expand his farming. His earnings have made it easier to provide for his family. He has also been able to put some money into savings. He continues to take out loans.

He is therefore asking lenders to help him with rice cultivation. This project requires 25kg of seed, 60kg of chemical fertiliser and he will also pay for labour. He still has a stock of paddy from the last harvest for food. He will sell his products to distributors.
