A loan of $2,275 helped a member to buy more layer chickens that she will eventually resell.

Budondo Development Association-Jinja Group's story

Sixteen years down the road is not easy mileage, especially when you are talking about operating a business in a rural area such as Budondo-Jinja.

The poultry business that 56-year-old B. Feibe runs could be bringing her more profits if she were operating in an urban setting. Chicken is a highly favored delicacy in urban areas in Uganda. Despite this fact she has to find a way to make ends meet. While $22 may be minimal for this married mother of 13, she knows she has her responsibilities cut out for her, bearing in mind the many children she has.

She began this business after she got apprentice training from the national agricultural advisory service people in her rural area. She initially began with farming. She still runs her farm. With this loan, Feibe says she wants to buy more layer chickens for her business. In the course of time she says she will resell so that she can increase her profit margins.
