A loan of $2,175 helped a member to purchase day-old chicks, both broilers and layers, for her farm expansion.


Annet's Group's story

Annet N. is the chairperson of the Kalagala Development Group in Mpigi, now seeking its sixth loan from Pearl Microfinance. Both a businesswoman and farmer of many years’ experience, Annet purchases bananas (matooke), beans, and maize for resale in the various area markets and raises poultry and cattle. As well, she grows some matooke, beans and maize for both home consumption and sale.



Annet is the mother of three children, one of whom is still in school, and also the caregiver for five orphans who all attend school. She says she has been successful in her business ventures because of the help and unqualified support of her children and husband.



Previous loans have also been instrumental in the success of her poultry business, enabling her to buy feed and day-old chicks in bulk. Annet is now requesting a loan to assist in the purchase of 300 more layers and 200 more broilers.
