Virginia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy more Kuroiler chicks and a solar panel to provide lighting in the poultry house.
Virginia, 39, is blessed with a supportive husband and two beautiful children. She is actively engaged in poultry farming for a living. One of the major reasons she enjoys this business is because it enables her to sustain her family. However, one of the major challenges she faces is poor lighting where her chickens hatch. She has proposed to use her loan to purchase a solar panel to improve lighting and also buy more Kuroiler chicks so she can have a good mix of Kuroilers and broilers. She has proposed to pay back her loan using the profits she makes. Her dream is to grow her business and fully support her family.
