A loan of $800 helped to buy chicks and chicken feed.

Martha's story

Martha is widowed and a mother of one. She rears chicken on her farm to earn a living. She sells eggs, chickens and chicks to her neighbors and friends who know about her business. She also runs a retail shop to earn enough money to support her family since she is the breadwinner.

She has been saving her money with her group in Faulu Kenya named Kasa Self Group. The group guarantees loans for its members. She has previously taken out and successfully repaid three loans from Faulu Kenya, a Kiva partner, to expand her business. She has requested a loan for 60,000 Kenyan shillings from Faulu Kenya to buy chicks and chicken feed. She hopes to grow her business to a wholesale outlet in the future.
