Raise Chicks, earn money and live a healthy life

We give chicks to extremely poor Afghan women to raise. We buy the raised chickens and use the meat to serve street food to poor people.

Use Case

We will serve chicken food in the solar powered carts because it is hard for women to move the carts alone. Attaching DC motors with the four wheels of the cart will get powered by batteries which will be charged by solar panels installed in the rooftops of the carts. Solar powered carts will help our beneficiaries to reach to more customers in different locations. It will be a free way of transportation .

Potential

Raising Chicks can be a vital source of poverty alleviation in the most fragile environments. It doesn't require a lot of investment. with seed funding, training and knowledge to raise chicks will create a network of home-based poultry farms which will raise funds from their businesses to help their fellows in need. Solar powered food carts is a cheap transportation source for women to excel well in street food business. It should be promoted in countries with abundant source of solar energy.

Business Case

We buy chickens which are raised from our home-based poultry farms. We prepare street food "Baryani" from the organic chicken meat. We then cater this street food to the people who can't afford quality food in restaurants. The female cart owners sell a plate of Chicken Baryani for 1.15 $, serving almost 200 plates a day generating a revenue of 230 $ and 100 $ net profit. Looking at market size, we can accommodate 20 food carts in different locations of Kabul which can generate 4600 $ in revenue and 2000 $ net profit a day. Since our business is for purpose, we will utilize the profit to create more poultry to extremely poor women .

Objectives:

  1. To help the women escape extreme poverty and to prevent their kids from malnutrition
  2. To break the stereotypes made against women who intend to do business in an Afghan society
  3. To include, motivate and inspire women to take an equal part in the economic development of Afghanistan
