Project Update from MUIXIL

“We represent Ixil women living in poor communities. We don't have enough money to send our children to school, but we have benefited from the chickens. More women from the community would like to be able to receive chickens and feed their families. Many of the women who see how the chicken project is improving their lives and would also like to be able to be a part of the project.” – Doña Maria Victoria, from Chajul community - El Quiche, Guatemala.
