How much can you learn from a chicken?
With your continued support, plus training and a micro-loan from BRAC, Asha learned a lot. In fact, her chicken business is helping her go back to school so she can learn even more.
Asha used to sit at home with nothing to do. Her father couldn't afford to send her to school, and she had no skills with which to get a job. In short, her future seemed bleak.
She joined one of BRAC's adolescent girls clubs and signed up for livelihood training to learn how to raise chickens. After completing the training, she took out a micro-loan from BRAC and bought 200 day-old chicks to raise. Thanks to the training she received, she knew to get her chickens vaccinated and to give them the proper food and space to move around in so they would grow up healthy.
Asha's already sold 100 of her chickens, and is using some of the profits to go back to school!
