My name is Musabyimana Emmanuel, I am Rwandan and 32 years old, and I am agronomist engineer in animal science.
My business is poultry farming, where I grow broilers and sell chicken meats. I started this business in December 2014, with 1000 broilers and now I am at the number 1500 broilers. And each batch takes two months to grow it and sell it. My objective is to reach the number of 15000 broilers in 3 years and this will allow me to put on market chicken meat at affordable prices. It is a profitable business because it is from the profit I made on each batch I managed to increase the number from a 1000 to 1500 broilers.
The margin of benefit varies from 300 Rwf/kg to 900 Rwf/kg depending on the prices on the market
Apart of increasing the number, I aim also to start a transformation unit, to add value on chicken meats and set up a fast food selling point, a small hatchery and slaughtering house with freezing room.
