Fledglings or future earnings, what do you see?

An Enactus team in Azerbaijan saw a way to make refugees self-sufficient. They provided 10 families with 200 chicks. Exposure to entrepreneurship extended to neighbors and relatives, infusing the community with new skills. Each family in the program ended up earning $640 in net profit.
