Belinda’s Hens

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Belinda is a 29 year old woman, with a husband and 3 daughters.  Her husband works as a laborer on a neighbor’s small plot of land.  For each day he works, he receives pay of $5.  But, the work is not steady…..there is only work for him about when the neighbor needs him. There are no other jobs available.

Belinda wanted to help the family, so she was excited when she heard about Shoulder to Shoulder’s “Hens Hatching Hope: Un Huevo Cada Dia” project.  StS provided Belinda with a $200 micro-loan, and she used the money to purchase 30 hens and build a wire enclosure to keep the hens contained.  With these hens, she provides 30 eggs per month to 20 children in the program.  Belinda is not selling eggs to anyone else.  Any eggs not purchased by StS (for the children enrolled in the program), are eaten by Belinda’s family.

Dear Donorfirst,

Belinda is a 29 year old woman, with a husband and 3 daughters.  Her husband works as a laborer on a neighbor’s small plot of land.  For each day he works, he receives pay of $5.  But, the work is not steady…..there is only work for him about when the neighbor needs him. There are no other jobs available.

Belinda wanted to help the family, so she was excited when she heard about Shoulder to Shoulder’s “Hens Hatching Hope: Un Huevo Cada Dia” project.  StS provided Belinda with a $200 micro-loan, and she used the money to purchase 30 hens and build a wire enclosure to keep the hens contained.  With these hens, she provides 30 eggs per month to 20 children in the program.  Belinda is not selling eggs to anyone else.  Any eggs not purchased by StS (for the children enrolled in the program), are eaten by Belinda’s family.

If Belinda could purchase more hens, she could sell more eggs.  This would be a great help to her family.
