About

Fabian and his team will work to create a cooperative for rural unemployed women in San Pedro Carchá, northern Guatemala.  Through this endeavor, these women will raise chickens and be trained to produce and distribute chicken meat for restaurants and local markets.  With an initial investment of $3,000, (Change it to $6,000) within the first production cycle, the cooperative will see a 150% return.  Fabian plans to expand from this pilot to other parts of Guatemala, empowering women through micro-enterprise and local engagement and training.
