02_Sikilo Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a box of chicks.

02_Sikilo Group's story

Since its creation in January 1997, this group has comprised very dynamic, interdependent women. They are primarily active in business and raising animals.

Martine, in the photo, is the group's representative. She is age 55, married and mother of six children. She is active in poultry farming, which she is skilled at and has a lot of experience with. She recently benefited from her first loan.

She plans to buy chicks, which she will raise and sell once they have reached maturity. The rest of the loan will serve to buy poultry feed.

She will use the profits gained from her business to further develop it as well as launch a fabric business in partnership with her aunt.
