Women Of Excellence Group's story

The Women of Excellence group is made up of two hardworking women who desire to improve the living standard of their families as well as attaining financial security through investing in their small businesses. They got a combined loan of $2,000, which will be invested in their poultry business.

Getrude has been sustained by chicken rearing after the death of her husband who was the sole breadwinner. From that business her children were able to complete their high school education. The elder one Lydia, though married now is also running her own chicken business and her last-born is about to finish her tertiary education. She keeps 100 birds per batch and her strength is in maintaining good records and marketing.

“I teach, clothe and feed my children because of the income from the chickens” says Gertrude. A Kiva loan will help Women of Excellence group to boost their businesses; Gertrude will use her share of the loan to purchase day old chicks, feed and medicine.
