Georgina has operated a poutry business for the past five years, selling both wholesale and from door to door to her neighbors. Her customers include hotel businesses and butcher shops. Georgina's primary business challenges are the high cost of chicken feed and the outbreak of disease. She dreams of expanding her business to better meet her customers' needs.
Georgina and her husband have four sons, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
Georgina decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business. With the Kshs 70,000 loan, she plans to purchase chicks and poultry feed.
