A loan helped to buy products for his grocery store.


Honoré's story

Honoré, age 28, is the father of a family who lives in a neighborhood in the city center of Antsirabe. He's been a grocer for the past four years. He runs his business close to his home.

Honoré has been partnering with Vahatra for five months now. He took two loans to expand his grocery store. He increased the amount of products he sells. He managed to repay the loan before the term in both cases.

He wants to take another loan with the same goal : expand his business. He intends to again increase the quantity of products. He wants to ensure a better standard of living to his family, and plans to achieve financial autonomy later.
