Mama Beni

Mama Beni – Margaret lives next to Neema Village and was hired to work in the fields making $2.50 per day.  She is married and has four children.  She wants to provide a better future for her children.  We talked with her about business possibilities and she decided that a chicken business would allow her to continue working in the fields.  She had a small chicken coop so we bought her 40 chickens and will buy chicken feed for 6 months until the hens begin laying.  She will sell the eggs for 450 TSH per egg (about .20 cents per egg).  We estimate she can make $8 dollars a day which will almost triple her income.  Her business cost  $500.

Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.
