A loan of $2,650 helps to buy 35 cartons of chicks, 20 bags of corn, 1 vaccination kit and other products, and to save to care for her children.


Tebnonma Marie's story

Tebnonma Marie is the mother of 5 children who go to school. She has been farming poultry for 3 years in her suburb. She is in her seventh loan cycle with YIKRI IMF and is making her payments on the scheduled dates. She is asking for a loan to buy 35 cartons of chicks, 20 bags of corn, 1 vaccination kit and other products to better raise them for resale at the appropriate time. She plans to use her profits to build a large chicken coop and save to look after her children.
