A loan helped to buy 2 mid-sized pigs and 380kg of feed.


Tsirimbola's story

Tsirimbola is a young woman of twenty-nine. She is married and has a child. She and her partner live in a neighborhood on the outskirts of the city in a wooden house. Tsirimbola has worked in pig farming for six years. She also runs a cash-point. Her partner runs a fuseball room.

Tsirimbola is partnered with Vahatra in order to increase her capital. With this loan she plans to purchase two medium-sized pigs and 380 kg of feed for them. After fattening them up she will resell them to the city's butchers.

The profits from this project will allow Tsirimbola to increase funds at her cash-point. She hopes to have the support of Kiva lenders.
