Meeting daily needs can be a real struggle for many poor families in Nepal. This does not leave any opportunity to save or plan for unexpected events. For example, if a farmer’s crop fails and there is nothing to fall back on, a family can quickly get into difficulty. This gift could give baby chicks to family so they can start their own small poultry business. By selling the produce, the family will have an important source of extra income and security. The whole family also gets to benefit from eating the meat and eggs their chickens will provide.
