Lova's story

Lova, 41 years old, is a mother of three children. She lives in a rural area with her family. She is a livestock farmer and her husband is a cart driver. Lova and her family are still fighting for a better life.

Lova has been a micro-borrower for a few years. She is one of Vahatra's good partners. She uses the loans in pig farming. She started with a small loan that allowed her to add a pig to her herd. Then, she obtained more loans of higher amounts to gradually increase her herd. She also received training from Vahatra that helped her improve her business. Recently, she was able to buy a cow with her profits. She is also able to deposit money in savings. Her goal is to build her own house.

Lova needs this loan to buy 4 pigs to fatten. She is counting on the support of the Kiva lenders. She sells her products at the local market. She will strengthen her savings with her profits.
