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


Manyara's story

Manyara is a 27 year-old young woman. She is married and has one child and is currently living in the Chiredzi District of Zimbabwe. She is a Camfed Learner Guide volunteering at her local secondary school teaching life skills sessions every week. Over the last year, she has grown her poultry business to its current capacity – producing about 100 broiler birds every six weeks and selling them to the local residents. She started the business in 2012 because she wanted to be financially independent. Manyara would very much like to increase her sales volume and become a supplier to major supermarkets. She will use the Kiva loan to purchase more broiler chicks and chick feed to increase production. She hopes to provide for herself and remain financially independent.
