A loan of $500 helped to purchase ingredients to make roast chicken.


Shirley Magda's story

Magda lives in the Toborochi colony and she has lived there for many years. She sells roasted chicken from her home with her daughter’s help. Her daughter is 24 years old and she is in university. In advance of her daily sales, she goes to the market in the mornings to make the purchases necessary to prepare the chicken for sale in the afternoons. She also employs a 16 year old young woman for help in the business. She is paid on a monthly basis. Her business is the only one of its type in the neighborhood. Magda is well known and much loved in her community. Magda will purchase soft drinks and ingredients to prepare her delicious chicken with the funds from this loan. She is very grateful to the organization for the support.
