A loan of $325 helped buy chicks for poultry farming.

Bigué's story

Bigue is a 58-year-old woman who lives in the district and has been involved in poultry farming for over 10 years. Despite her age she begins her day at 6 am to rest at 8 pm.

She is requesting this loan of 150,000 francs to buy chicks and the feed to fatten them, after which she resells them. She helps her husband in managing the daily family expenditures.

She would also like to diversify her products to satisfy her customers and increase revenues, in order to improve her family's living conditions.

With the help of the institution, Bigue would like to acquire a big chicken coop so she can increase the number of chicks.
