A loan helped to raise meat chickens.


Martins's story

Martins was born in the province of Maputo. He is 58 and is a widower. He is the father of 5 adult children, 3 of whom are in school. He works as an educator at a Secondary School and he raises and sells chickens in his spare time.

This is his 3rd loan. It is for the purpose of acquiring feed, chicks, and vaccines for raising meat chickens for resale.

He is a repeat borrower; with his previous loan, he invested in buying and raising chicks. In the future, he plans to have a poultry slaughterhouse.
