Help me start a farming business to support my family!

To kickstart this business, I am in need of $300. This will help me obtain the poultry and necessary tools to start my business.

Overview

I am a 57-year-old woman who has faced tremendous challenges in my life. I wasn't married when I developed a fistula back in 1985. However, I am now a married woman with seven children, although tragically, two of them have passed away.

Previously, I worked as a farmer, which brought me solace and purpose. However, since I have to focus on my recovery, I had to leave farming behind temporarily. Now, as I continue on the path to recovery, I hope to start a new business venture in poultry farming.

To kickstart this business, I am in need of $300. This will help me obtain the poultry and necessary tools to start my business.

Your support in providing the necessary funds would not only help me become self-sufficient but also bring stability and sustenance to my family. It would allow me to continue pursuing my passion for farming, albeit in a different form, and work towards a brighter tomorrow. With your assistance, I can overcome the challenges I have faced, regain my self-esteem, and create a better life for my family.
