A loan helped farasoa to buy 80 chicks, 200 kg of animal feed, bags of charcoal and pesticides.


Farasoa's story

Farasoa lives in a semi-rural area of Antsirabe. She is 43 years old, married and has three sons. She has been raising and cooking chickens for the past four years.

In order to increase her earnings Farasoa borrows with Vahatra (a Kiva field partner) and her business has benefited from their management training program. She will use this next loan to purchase 80 chicks, 200 kg of animal feed, crop protection products and several bags of charcoal to cook the chickens. She will handle the sales herself in a few months.

Farasoa is very invested in her work and wants to earn enough to support her family.
