Grace's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase more broiler chicks and chick feed to increase production.
Grace is a 19-year-old young woman. She is single and lives in the Guruve District of Zimbabwe. She volunteers in schools in her community offering guidance and support to students through life skills education. Over the last year, she has grown her poultry business to its current capacity – producing about 150 broiler birds every 6 weeks and selling them to local residents. She started the business in 2013 when her family started facing financial difficulties. Poultry production is a thriving business in her community. Grace would very much like to increase her sales and become a supplier to major supermarkets such as Food World in Zimbabwe. Grace will use the Kiva loan to purchase more broiler chicks and chick feed to increase production. This will enable her to further her education.
