Germaine's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy some average pigs to fatten along with their feed and 200 kg of soya to expand her business.


Germaine's story

Germaine is a widow. She is 57 years old and she has four children who are already independent. She has a wood house which is found in a popular neighbourhood of the city. To support her life she works raising pigs and she has also been selling soy milk for eleven years. She is a good partner with Vahatra. She borrows some loans to develop her businesses. She wants to improve her living conditions. With this loan she will increase her pigs to raise and expand her business. She is asking therefore for the support of the lenders to buy some average pigs to fatten as well as their feed and 200 kg of soya to expand her business. She is going to put her profits in savings. She plans to construct a permanent house later.
