A loan of $450 helped to buy chicks and chicken feed to boost her yield.


Irene's story

Irene, who is 42 years old, is a single mother and lives with her children. Three years ago she began an agribusiness activity, raising and selling chickens and eggs.

She is currently going through a low economic situation and this keeps her from making enough profit to meet her family's financial needs. But thanks to UGAFODE she will now be able to pay for chicks and feed to boost her egg production. This is why she wants to keep the business going and needs to buy chicks and balanced feed in order to achieve better growth and to be able to sell them faster in the market.

In the future, Irene would like to build her own home and continue saving in order to improve her family's quality of life.
