A loan helped to buy the necessary fertilizers to grow potatoes.


Lantoniaina's story

Lantoniaina is thankful to the Kiva lenders who helped her. She was able to extend her work growing potatoes.

She sold off all her products and the earnings were put toward family expenses. She was also able to put a little of her money into savings, with her earnings.

She finished her loan repayments and she decided to take out another loan. She will continue to pursue growing potatoes.

So she still needs seeds and fertilizer, and she is also going to pay several laborers. She still hopes for the support of lenders.

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.
