Mariam's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to build a barracks for her chickens to protect them from the cold weather in order to continue the production of eggs and fresh poultry during the winter.

Mariam's story

Mariam and her chickens are waiting for the cold weather in fear. The winter is a difficult time without the right preparations. Mariam wants to build a barracks for the chickens to keep them warm. She has 50 of them and housing them will not be cheap. A loan will help Mariam build the desired structure to keep the birds safe and warm. They provide her, and others that can pay, with fresh eggs and fresh chicken meat.
