A loan helped to buy the necessary inputs for potato farming, farmer's chickens and bags to resell.


Malalasoa's story

Malalasoa, 38 years old, her spouse, and their three children live in a rural village. She practices agriculture and breeding. To meet daily needs, she maintains a small sale of plastic bags. Her husband is a transporter, and he is also a welder.

Despite their multiple activities, the family income remains unstable. As a result, Malalasoa has decided to take out loans, with the agreement of her husband. She aims to expand her business to increase income. For her previous loans, she went with Vahatra.

She hopes for the support of lenders for the next loan. She will use it for the cultivation of potatoes, for raising farmer's chickens, and also to stock up on bags to resell in the market. In the long term, she wants to buy a car.
