A loan of $425 helped to buy three pigs and one dairy cow.


Bernadette's story

Bernadette is a dynamic 30-year-old married woman and the mother of two children. She lives in a semi-rural neighborhood where she owns a small farm. She has been borrowing money from Vahatra for the past two years. Thanks to the profits made from her previous loans, she was able to buy a plot of land. This current loan will help her buy three pigs for fattening and one dairy cow. She will also buy livestock feed. She is hoping to make further profits in order to build a house on the land that she's bought.
