A loan of $1,600 helped a member to buy chickens, vaccines and chicken feed.

Jeova Jaire Group's story

Snodia is 49 years old and lives in Gweru. She is married and her husband is a farmer. They have three children aged 23, 23 and 19. The last-born is still at school. They also look after seven further dependants.

Snodia raises and sells chickens. She is part of a co-operative with three other members. The main challenges facing her business are the difficulty in raising growth capital and the high mortality rates among chicks during the cold weather.

She will invest the money she borrows in chicks, vaccines and chicken feed. She believes that this will enable the family to have a better life through providing food for the family.

Over the next five years, Snodia hopes to develop a thriving business of her own.
