A loan of $1,475 helped to build another poultry house and obtain more chickens.


Samar's story

Samar is a 39-year-old, conservative woman. She asked her husband, who helps her in the business, to appear in the photo in her place.

Samar and her husband have four children to support. During the past seven years, Samar built a poultry house and has been selling some of the chickens' eggs and chickens. Now, Samar is applying for a loan, which she will use to build another poultry house and obtain more chickens.
