African Chicken is a Tanzanian business that fights unemployment, poverty, and hunger, with chickens. Their goal is to increase rural household communities’ income from less than $1 to $2 by 2020. The company provides chickens to rural women, who they pay to raise them for four months. Then the firm collects 90% of the chickens, and sells them to hotels, restaurants, and other large buyers. The women keep 10% of the chickens for themselves. Africa Chicken aims to scale up the annual production of 300,000 chickens by 2019 with revenues of about $2 million dollars. Their model is being studied by universities, small holder chicken producers, NGOs, government agencies, and also the Tanzanian Livestock Research Institute. This project is led by John Kayira.
