A loan of $600 helped to purchase chicks and chicken feed.


Irika's story

Irika lives in Samburu, in the coastal region of Kenya, in her own house. However, it lacks both electricity and piped water. She is in her early 50’s, widowed and a mother of six. Only one of her children goes school.

Irika had been farming for almost seven years with her husband, before he died. She recently opened a poultry business after getting contributions from her children. She tells us that she buys local breeds and rears them before selling them to people at cafes. It has been a profitable project and she hopes to own several businesses so as to support the education of her last born, whom she loves most. She is requesting a loan so as to purchase chicks and chicken feed.
