Financial Breakthrough Through Poultry

Me as the secretary of Namatsi Self help group I am so encouraged with the group which has a great help to my family. It is through this group that I have grown and come this far. We have marry-go -round that we contribute every month 500/= ksh. It reached my turn when I was given this money and had already planned on what to do with it. I decided to do poultry of which I had no knowledge about it, but thank God this group had come in and help to educate me about it. I know what I should do and have even found the work very easy and profitable. I am now keeping the once which give meat and eggs and so have market for them.
