Salima, 41, is married and has three children. She lives in the town of Kaloleni, in the Coast province of Kenya. She has established a business in her house, raising, fattening, and selling chickens. She started this activity a year ago, and she already has customers. She raises the chickens and later sells them from her home to hoteliers.
Salima wants to increase the quantity of chickens she has, so that she can increase her sales and income. For this reason, she is requesting a loan of KES 50,000, so that she can buy more chicks and chicken feed (concentrate). Her goal is to grow her business and increase her income, so that she can give her children a better quality of life.
