A loan of $225 helped to purchase 100 chicks to raise and resell.


Fatou's story

At 45 years old, Mrs. Fatou has been in retail for two years: she sells incense, but business is mostly active during the rainy and cold seasons. To keep busy, she recently started raising chickens for meat. She is requesting this loan to purchase 100 chicks and their feed. Fatou is married and a mother of four; her two oldest children are girls. She does not have expenses beyond a monthly contribution to a neighborhood business association. Mrs. Fatou wants to increase her savings to one day become financially independent.
