My name is Rabia. I am 55 years. I have 9 children; 4 boys and 5 girls; their ages are from 11 to 30 years. I live at Avaramanda since 28 years. I am a widow. I have not done any studies. I am a weaver right now. I would like to use this loan to invest in the business of selling clothes. My dream is to succeed in life and help my children finish their studies and have a good education that I do not have to ensure their future.

Hello, it's me, Rabia. I don't have children who go to school so I don't have worries in that regard. But I do know that parents who do have children in school worry because the cost of schooling goes up each year. But I find that normal because the price of everything else is going up as well. In fact, that is life here in Madagascar where everything is expensive.

Hello! It’s me, Rabia. For me, everything is going badly because I have not been able to sell my shawls for a long time. But I hope that things will get better. For this vacation, my children are going to help me with household chores and they play also. For Independence Day, we did not celebrate, but in the morning, we went to the stadium to watch the parade and in the afternoon the children went to the celebration that the town had organized.

Hello! It's me, Rabia. I am ashamed because up until now, I have not been able to reimburse my two months of loan, and I do not know when I would be able to do it because up until now I have not yet had a stable source of income. This is a difficult period right now, and I have nothing to say about our national holiday because in order to celebrate it is necessary to have money and I don't have any.

Hi, it's me, Rabia. I don't really know what to tell you because up until now, I have not been able to repay the first part of the loan. I haven't been able to get that amount of money together because my daughter has been sick and that money that I received, I used for medicine for her. Now, I am trying to get some money together to repay the loan and I'll try to repay two months of loans at once.

Hello from Rabia. I want to thank all the funders for having confidence in me and for giving me a second loan. I will be able to buy more silk now and we will be able to do more weaving for the tourist season which is approaching. I will be able to help my children and their children. Thank you!
