African Chicken’s story
African Chicken is tackling the issues of poverty, hunger, and unemployment through chicken. It does this by partnering with rural women farmers in Tanzania, supplying them (for free) with baby chicks, chicken feed, training, and veterinarian support.
Ali is a 42-year-old married man who lives with his family in a rented house in Sana’a governorate, Yemen. He has six children: the oldest is 18 years old, and the youngest is 8 years old.
Therefore, Ali decided to look for a financial institution to give him a loan to purchase a solar power system. He was happy to learn that Al-Amal Microfinance Bank provides interest-free loans for purchasing solar power systems. He immediately decided to visit the nearest bank branch in Sana’a governorate and apply for a 200,000 YER loan to purchase a solar power system, which includes two 150w solar panels, a 100 amp. battery, a solar charge controller, a DC/AC LED TV, bulbs and cables.
Ali is sure that his wife and children will be very happy to get electricity once again in their house. View his fund: https://www.kiva.org/lend/1119704
