A loan of $500 helped to purchase more broiler chicks and chick feed.

Spiwe's story

Spiwe is a 27-year-old mother of three living in the Chikomba District of Zimbabwe. Spiwe inspires many mothers in her community by showing them that it is possible to be financially independent, and to able to take care of family and children on your own if necessary. She started her poultry business in April 2013 after separating from her husband. She currently produces about 120 chickens every six weeks and sells them to the local customers.

Spiwe knows that she could sell more chickens each month, but because all her income is needed to provide for three children, she is unable to spend her current profits to expand her business. With this Kiva loan, she will be able to grow her business by buying more broiler chicks and chick feed to increase production. By growing her business, she will be able to live a more comfortable life and send her children to school.
