A loan of $575 helped to buy chickens to sell.


Medza's story

Medza lives in Tiribe, Kenya, and earns a living buying and selling chickens. She sells them to restaurants, diners and other shops.

Thanks to the high quality of her chickens, her business is starting to make headway. However, Medza is struggling to make enough money through her work to get ahead and help her family.

Medza has applied for a loan to buy more chickens, to keep up her supply and stay in business. Hew goal is to own and manage a shop one day.
