A loan of $1,600 helped a member to buy chicks, stock feeds, and medicine.


Masiga Group's story

Mavis is a 51-year-old widowed mother of three chidren aged 32, 23, and 21, one of whom is still attending school. She has two additional dependents, her grandchildren. In business for five years, Mavis operates from home, buying her products in the town of Chiredzi. She also earns additional income from renting out rooms.

Mavis' main business challenge is chicks that die prematurely due to heat. She is requesting this loan to buy more chicks, stock feeds, and medicines. These purchases should enable her to increase her profits and take better care of her family and orphaned grandchildren. Within the next five years, Mavis hopes to be able to rear chickens on a large scale and supply shops and schools in town.
