Timely support from Christian Aid enabled the setting up of a Village Savings & Loans Scheme in her community. Safia initially bought 250 chicks with her own savings. Later on, she was able to access a loan from her local Village Savings and Lending Scheme, organised by Christian Aid and a partner organisation in Kenya. With the loan, Safia bought a further 500 chicks. Here, you see her showing off her healthy chicks from her brood of chickens. She now runs her farm and a successful shop selling fresh chicken and eggs! And more than that, Safia is completely able to fulfil all her family’s basic needs.
Thanks to her determination and the security her new business has provided, Safia’s children are working to secure their futures too.
