He takes care of the house rent, food for the family, his mother’s healthcare expenses as well as water and electricity bills. HE has been raising poultry for two years. He started raising broiler chickens with the savings he was able to put together thanks to his work as a cabinet maker, which is his proper trade. He has a workshop in the village. He also raises sheep between two cycles of breeding chickens. Raising poultry and ship bring him necessary additional income to support this family and himself. He has been a member of IMCEC since 2008 and obtained four loans in the past, all fully reimbursed without delays. He is seeking a loan of 150,000 for his poultry business, in order to buy two cases of chicks, two 50-kg bags of chicken feed, and veterinary products. After selling chickens two months later, he should receive substantial income helping him to meet the costs of rent, food, healthcare, water and electricity. His future goal is to have a big chicken coop built on the land plot which he had recently bought, but also, and above all, to have a house built for is family.
