Victoria's story

Victoria is a young father of a family and is 31 years old. He is married and has two children living at home. He lives in a rural village and the family owns a solid house. He is a farmer and rears animals. For 10 years he has been invested in the rearing of pigs and cultivation of potatoes. His wife helps him. He is a good partner of Vahatra and, since he joined, his capital has continued to increase. Now he would like to increase the number of pigs he fattens up and enlarge his cultivated land, thus taking advantage of it. He is requesting support from the lenders to buy some pigs, 500kg of corn and some food to fatten them up. And then 300kg of seeds, fertiliser, manure and pesticides to support his business. He already has customers for his harvests and his animals. His profits will go towards boosting his capital and his savings for a better future.
