Beauty's story

Beauty is a 55 year old woman residing in Harare. Her husband recently retired and is now a pensioner. Beauty raises poultry, keeping both roadrunners and broilers. As a woman who is getting older, she increased the number of roadrunners as they require less attention, thus giving her time to rest while putting food on the table.

Beauty was once part of the Home Talents group and, along the way, the other members felt that their businesses had been boosted enough and dropped out. Beauty then decided to take individual loans. She is now on her 3rd loan. She went through further loan training where she was reminded on proper loan use and bookkeeping so as to boost her business. She used her loan to purchase an incubator to hatch eggs. She intends to sell chicks as the market of chicks is in short of supply. She also purchased feed for her chickens.
