This project has finished.
Hello everyone! I'm Nadine Chabi and I live in Porto Novo, Benin!
I need some help to improve my poultry production business!
One year ago, I decided to go back to my country from France to start a small business on poultry production.
Each year Benin imports hundred containers of frozen chickens. I really believe that it's possible to produce locally and create jobs and that would be really positive to poor communities.
That's why I would like to keep improving my farm and making grow this business until I can create employment in my community!
On July of last year I published a project in Airtripp Funding to get support to improve my poultry business.
Thanks to all the wonderful people that supported me I was able to collect $993! I've been able to build two small chicken coops, to bring chickens to the farm and start building the main hen house.
Currently, the construction of the main hen house remains unfinished as I already used the funds and my own savings in the farm and production, and there is no more funds left to finish what I've started.
I also have to afford many expenses concerning the maintenance of the production like purchasing vaccines and feed the chickens or paying the electricity bills that are really expensive due to the heat usage on the incubators.
To order the food components, vaccines, medications and vitamins for the chickens I had to used $600 of my own savings so far, in addition to what I collected.
This business is the source of income of not only me, but my family. My family and friends are also trying to cop with many different economic problems so they can't support me financially.
It has been impossible to get funded by an organization or appropriate institution as I'm too young.
I would like to raise $1,130 that will allow me to finish the big hen house as well as afford the expenses detailed below.
If I manage to get enough support first thing I will do is to finish the construction of the main hen house.
I will continue my production to the end and sell eggs and chickens ans also employ two more persons.
Once the business has grown, I would like to hire more local people in the future.
If i don't achieve the target, I will sell the chickens that I already have until I can afford to produce. I hope for everyone to support my project. Thank you very much in advance!
