Lots of challenges have been encountered by this lady such as the lack of adequate finances to start up a business and low income within the family, making it difficult to even take care of some basic needs such as education and health bills. Again, she lost her sister who was lending her a helping hand. She also had a motorbike accident and the disappearance of her brother to date. But her situation changed when she joined GHAPE.
She intends to use this loan in preparing her poultry farm, buying feed for the fowls, buying crates of day-old chicks, feeding trays, fowl vaccines, and drinkers (waterers).
Her loan activity will help the community because it will improve on their nutritional needs, as protein will be on their tables at low and affordable prices. The fowl droppings will be use by women as manure for their farms.
The venture will be successful because of the high demand for fowl products, that is, chicken and fowl droppings. The profits will be used to cater to her children’s education fees and hospital bills. She also will use the profits to acquire a parcel of land and to plough back into her business.
