A loan of $4,825 helped a member to purchase chicken mash and more chickens to resell.

Alinyikira Womens Association Mutundwe Group's story

40-year-old Resty has been plying her poultry business for the past 10 years. The happily married mother of five says she began this business out of her her own enterprise. The lucrative business nature and high demand for chicken in Kampala, where she operates from is what precipitated her decision to join.

She says influence from close family and friends also contributed to her decision. Prior to that, she was involved in mostly odd jobs in and around Kampala, principally working in the decoration business.

Weekly she says this business generates gross sales revenue to the tune of Uganda shillings 50,000. Her optimism is high however. She says with this Kiva loan, her business prospects will get that improved lease on life that she has invariably wanted.

She plans to use her loan to purchase chicken mash and more chickens to resell
