Mavis's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to make bulk purchases of chicks, feed, and vaccines.
Mavis’s poultry business is doing well. When she got her first loan, she purchased more chicks and feed. She is now producing 100 birds every three weeks and is very proud of the development she has had so far. Her income has increased by 15% since April. She used her profits to provide for her family and pay for her husband’s college tuition. Her major challenge was Newcastle disease, which affected most of her chickens in June. She lost over 30 birds, but she has managed to improve her production yet again. She hopes to venture into egg production in the near future.
