About Me

My name is Edith Charles, I am 33 years old, I am married and I have a very good husband. My husband and I are lucky to have 3 children, two girls and one boy.
I was born in Moshi district in Kilimanjaro region in a family with 5 children. I was not lucky enough to be raised by my parents due to the difficulty of life. I went to be raised by my grandmother in Hai district. During the time that I am at school every time of vacation, I did a fruit business to help my younger siblings get various needs for school after opening school as well as small household needs.
When I was 24 years old, I started raising chickens, this was not for business, but I raised them so that my younger siblings and the family in general, when they have a financial challenge, sell them to solve their challenges.

My Business

I officially started my business one year ago here in Dodoma. I currently raise local chickens as well as hybrids, thus making it easier to get meat and quality eggs in my community. I sell chicken eggs in stores as well as chicken meat in restaurants. My community is very happy to have this service near them.
I have many things to improve in this business so that I can produce more chickens and eggs to match the number of customers that is increasing day by day and meet the needs of my community as a whole.

Project Proposal

Your loan of 300,000 shillings will enable me to buy new chicks, improve the chicken coop and buy vaccines to deal with diseases that attack chickens.
also the profit I will get through this loan will help to take good care of my family as well as the families of the young people I plan to hire.
Thank you san for your loan because you will contribute to the development of all three families as well as the health of my community in general because instead of eating modern chicken and eggs they will get local chicken eggs easily. Thank you very much.
