Idirisa's story

Idirisa is a middle-aged man who is married with three children aged ten, six and two years-old. Two of them are attending school. He lives in Shurugwi, Gweru town where he works as a Policeman. Idirisa is also doing a poultry business and has been doing this for the past six years now. He has borrowed once before from Kiva partner Microking and has now asked for a repeat loan in order to buy 300 chicks and 10 bags of chicken feed. He is requesting a loan of $1,200.00

The main challenge he faces is that chicks are easily affected by diseases such as newcastle which usually leads to death. He sees himself having a plot and having a bigger project with 1,000 chicks supplied to a larger market. The loan would certainly improve Idirisa’s life style . He intends to buy a residential stand in Shurugwi, Gweru with the income generated from the business.
