Beyond (Red) Group's story

Irine is a 64-year-old lady who sells clothing and peanut butter. She is also in the poultry business, where she earns most her profits.

She has been able to do 10 batches of 100 birds since January 2018, and has grown from batches of 50 birds thus, doubling her income from poultry.

Being a single parent, she has been able to raise her two children well and now she is taking care of her three grandchildren. Her financial muscle has sustained her through thick and thin.

Having applied for a group loan with Thrive Microfinance, Irine got a portion and with this amount she bought 100 chicks together with the 8 bags of feeds needed to sustain her up to six weeks.

Her hopes are to build another fowl run so she can restock different batches for a consistent supply.
