A loan of $1,000 helped buy chicks, ration and vaccines to expand her business raising chickens.


Rostalina's story

Rostalina is separated from her husband and is the mother of 8 children who are all of age. Only 2 are still studying and are therefore her responsibility. She lives in a house she owns, is 62 years old and has never gone to school. She lives off her business and this is her 3rd loan. She plans to buy chicks, ration and vaccines to expand her business raising chickens. Her dream is to develop her business and build an extension to her home. Her biggest challenge is the fact that her business is quite risky and sometimes she loses almost all her chickens.
