“My big dream is to breed my own chickens so that I have more than I have now.”
Sithando Sitiba is almost finished repaying her second small business loan with Phakamani. The access to capital has allowed her to be more consistent with her chicken inventory. “Business before was a little bit bad, never had enough for stock” she claims. She also sells popcorn and uses the proceeds from both of these ventures to support all 12 members of her household. Her next goal is to begin breeding her own chickens, growing her business and increasing her profit margins.
