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

A loan helped to buy 200 chicks, food and 100 sacks of charcoal, and carry on saving to buy a plot of land to invest more in raising poultry.

Veronique's story

Veronique is a 29-year-old woman, who is married and mother to two children. She raises poultry and has had a chicken coop at her home for more than three years. She pays her loans back on time and has repaid her two Kiva loans without any difficulty.

She is requesting a new loan to buy 200 rooster chicks, food for them and 100 sacks of charcoal to heat the chicken coop and raise the chicks well, so she can resell them at the right time. The profits she makes will enable her to strengthen her chicken coop and continue to save to buy a plot of land to invest more in her poultry raising activity.

Finally, the thanks Yikri and its partners for the support it provides to entrepreneurs who do not have access to bank funding. Thanks to the loans from Yikri, she is managing to save money to buy a plot of land to invest more in raising poultry.
