Bersey's story

Bersey is an 18-year-old businesswoman. She is single and lives in the Shurugwi District of Zimbabwe. She has been successfully rearing broiler chickens for four months, producing 25 birds every six weeks. She was encouraged by other Cama (Camfed’s alumni network) members to venture into business so that she could reverse the cycle of poverty within her family. During her spare time, Bersey volunteers at her local schools assisting the students with study and life skills. With the requested loan, Bersey intends to buy more chicks, feed and feeding troughs to extend her fowl run. This would enable her to increase her production. With the additional profits she plans to better provide for herself and her siblings.
