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

A loan helped to buy 125 broiler chicks, feed (for the start and finish), vitamins and bags of charcoal.

Salanitra Manjaka's story

Salanitra is very happy because the previous loan enabled her to expand her business raising broiler chickens. After feeding them for 45 days, the chickens were sold and she used the income to cover her daily expenses and to buy some furniture for the house. To ensure her poultry business's continued growth, Salanitra has renewed her loan so that she can buy 125 broiler chicks, feed (for the start and the finish), vitamins and additional bags of charcoal. She dreams of one day becoming a kind of "wholesaler" who could provide customers with broiler chickens for the future.
