Madalena's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to raise chickens for slaughter.

Madalena's story

Madalena is 56 years old, single, and the mother of four adult children who are independent. She is a poultry farmer and also sells meals. She lives in her own house and does not have any significant role in her community.

The money from the loan will be used to buy chicks, feed, and vaccines to raise chickens for slaughter. This is Madalena's third loan, and she used the previous ones for the same business.

Her dream is to build a snack bar where she can sell her meals.
