Dimas
Dimas is 54 years old, and he is unmarried. He has been cultivating the land with his father since he was nine years old, and he started to work on his own when he was 12. He is currently raising broiler hens. After taking the last litter, he will remodel the hen house and make a farm for laying hens with the help of his sister-in-law who has received workshops on the upkeep of laying hens given by NGOs.

Dimas buys the chickens, the feed, and the vitamins in the city. Because the street is inaccessible, the estimated time of transporting his supplies is 2-3 hours in bus.

The money he is requesting will be invested to buy 100 laying hens, 6 bags of feed, and the vaccines and vitamins for the birds. He will also set aside part of the money to purchase three sacks of fertilizer to fertilize the corn and 300 red bricks to expand the chicken pen where he will have the hens.

The credit will help the client procure the supplies and materials to build a bigger chicken pen and to be able to have his chickens in a suitable place now that he has enough knowledge about maintaining laying hens. Dimas is contributing to his development in terms of feeding and egg production because he will have a much greater source of income, and he will be able to sell his products in the same county. Dimas will also have a harvest of staple grains which will sustain his family.

Dimas wants to have a chicken farm for laying hens that will generate income and that will be profitable so that he can be able to get his family ahead and remodel his home.
