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


Fortitude's story

20-year-old Fortitude runs her own poultry business in the Kwekwe District of Zimbabwe. Over the last year, she has grown her poultry business to its current capacity – producing about 50 broiler birds every six weeks and selling them to local residents. Aside from being active in her business, Fortitude volunteers in local clinics and schools as a janitor because she believes that a clean environment is healthy and conducive for learning.
She will use the Kiva loan to purchase more broiler chicks and chick feed to increase production. Fortitude would very much like to increase her sales and become a supplier to major supermarkets. With the profits from her business, Foritude will be able to continue her education.
