Yemi sells chickens and also supplies eggs to women who in turn retail them to the final consumers. She buys layers which when fed continue to lay eggs till they are sold off. Yemi has been in this business for the past five years, but before that, she was selling second-hand clothes. Business was not moving well hence she switched to poultry farming.

Yemi said she is requesting the loan amount of N140,000 to purchase layers in large quantity at a reduced price. This, she said, will enable her to meet the increasing demand of her customers.Yemi is based in Lagos State with her entire family. She is 46 years old and married with seven children. She says thank you.
