A loan helped to buy two tons of unripe bananas.


Fitiavana Hery Mampionona's story

Fitiavana is 26 years old and married to a chauffeur. The couple has two children who go to school. Fitiavana has been ripening bananas for five years.

She works near her home, and the market for her product is reliable. If she has room to buy more green bananas, she can sell more to her clients. This is why she's asking for a loan.

In addition to expanding her workspace, she wants to be able to save.
