She is one of the widows we’ve been helping out. We provided her with 50 chickens and she chose to sell their eggs for about $0.10 AUD each. In a month she is able to sell around 240 eggs, which gives her almost $30 AUD. This is a significant amount of money, and with it, Rajeswary has gone onto farming practices; selling coconuts and bananas to those in her community giving her greater profits. Before we met her, she worked a labourers job, which involved strenuous work, long hours, and the job was not guaranteed all the time.
By providing her with the resources to start her own business, Rajeswary has benefited greatly, and is taking it to the next step to become an entrepreneur.
We would love to discover more women like Rajeswary, and help them get onto their feet to start living to their full potential.
