A loan of $225 helped to purchase chicks to raise and resell.

Astou's story

Astou is a young, single woman with no children who has been participating in poultry farming for five years now. She is on her second IMCEC loan and would like 100,000CFA francs to purchase chicks and raise them to resell them. She owns a henhouse that she manages herself; she has the time to do it and loves her work.

Astou lives with her parents and, with the profits, she helps her mother with the family expenses. With the loan received she has been able to diversify her goods and services. Astou would like to become a major shopkeeper and open a market shop to sell fabrics.
