A loan of $300 helped to purchase chicks and chicken feed.


Esther's story

Esther is a married woman with five children, all of whom attend school. She lives in her own house, which has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For over two years, she has operated a poultry farming business, rearing broilers and layers, which she sells from home to her neighbors and restaurant operators. In addition, she also owns rental houses, which provide her other source of income. She says that her challenge is disease outbreak, which causes losses. Esther dreams of expanding her business to a wholesale one to earn more income.

With the Kshs 25,000 she wants to purchase chicks and chicken feed. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
