A loan helped to buy 2 local piglets and animal feed.


Vololoniaina's story

Vololoniaina is a 41 year old woman. She is married and the couple has 3 children. She lives in a neighborhood that is located on the edge of the city. The family owns a permanent house.

She has been raising pigs for about 6 years. Her spouse works for a business. She is a borrower with Vahatra.

She takes out loans to develop her animal raising work in order to improve her family’s revenue. So she asks for the support of lenders to buy 2 local piglets and their animal feed.

She is going to resell her herd after fattening them to the local butcher. The profits earning will reinforce her pig-raising work.

Translated from French by Kiva volunteer Bonnie Zaleski.


This loan is special because:

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