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


Shamiso's story

Shamiso is a 19-year-old young woman currently living in the Chiredzi District of Zimbabwe. She is a Camfed Learner Guide volunteering at her local secondary school teaching life skills sessions. Over the last year, she has grown her poultry business to its current capacity – producing about 50 broilers birds every six weeks and selling them to the local residents.
A Kiva loan will allow Shamiso to invest in more broiler chicks and the feed and supplies she needs to raise them. This increased production will help raise her income to a level that will help her become financially independent.
