A loan of $400 helps to purchase pigs to fatten and feed.
Edmond is a 44-year-old man. He is married and has four children, two of whom are already independent. The family lives in a rural village.
Edmond has been raising pigs for seven years. This business is the primary source of income for the family. He fattens and resells pigs. He also raises poultry such as turkeys. His wife helps him in addition to crop farming.
Edmond decided to expand his pig farming because it appears to be quite profitable. He joined Vahatra to take out loans. He wants to expand his pig stocks to make more profits. The previous loans were beneficial for him. He was able to build a house with the profits from the previous loans.
