About Me

My names are Maureen Masheke ,Mrs Mondwa.I started my Poultry business but have not moved much to do to my full capacity because of money issues that has made me do less.
I have the passion and desire to see this business grow and do more in the value addition to chickens.
I would like to be assisted so that I also help my son's who are in college and also in school.

My Business

My business of Chickens is a good business and if enough capital is in ,it can create even more jobs to other vulnerable pipo around my area.
I can even enploy more workers and also to do the farming around the farm.
We have a lot of customers but can't satisfy them because I'm failing to meet the demand

Loan Proposal

From the money,I wl be able to increase on the number of chicks in my Poultry business.I also want to increase with another worker.

    Thank you for all the assistance.fr my last loan,I was able to increase and buy another batch of my chickens.i increased to 300 chickens and this will be giving me a 6 weeks income income of over K20,000.
    If I manage to keep monthly,like if I can buy at intervals of 4 weeks apart,I will create my income monthly and be able to increase my earnings and continue to contribute to my society by means of workers ..
    My venture is becoming a reality and my dream of becoming a bigger Poultry farmer is going to be realized.
    I plan to pay a deposit towards a plot of which my desire is to start building my house next year.
    Please I will be glad and appreciate if my loan is funded.
    Thank you my funders .

    I managed to buy another batch of chickens that is at 2 weeks now.

    .The loan has made a difference in that I used some of my earnings to pay for my son s University fees.my son is doing MBA in Economics..

    My business investment has increased because now I was able to increase on the number of chickens and also able to pay my worker without any challenge.Im also doing some chillie field which I see as having a future in agriculture.
    With my earnings,I intend to pay a deposit fr a plot.Im tired of paying rentals
