A loan helped to buy an ox.


Arcel's story

Arcel would like to thank all the lenders who have supported him in his efforts to raise potatoes. He has been selling his products and he continues to farm. His profits have enabled him to buy an ox. He finished his loan payments and is all ready to take out another loan to buy another ox to add to his herd.

Arcel plans keep his oxen and use them as draft animals. They will help with plowing as well as with transporting. He is hoping for the support of some lenders. Arcel plans to buy a cart in the near future.

Translated from French by Kiva volunteer JOHN LONSDALE.


This loan is special because:

It helps the poorest of the poor in Madagascar to improve their lives.
