Mariam's story

Mariam is 34 years old, a resident of Kitende, divorced, with three school-going children. She has the sole responsibility of looking after their tuition and other basic needs.

Mariam deals in poultry farming in order to increase her daily income. She started rearing chickens in 2010. Mariam’s major clients are restaurants, hotels, and neighbors in surrounding areas.

She has the challenge of inadequate capital to help her grow her business and even help her meet operational expenses, like treatments, feed, and labor, in addition to fluctuating poultry feed prices, high prices for the chicks from breeders, inflation in the market, and weather changes.

She requested a loan to help her improve her business by acquiring more birds and poultry feed such that she is able to increase her earnings and compete in the market.
