Chicken Farming – Satara
Two years ago, we were able to connect with a retired business leader who had built up successful Chicken Farm and Processing Plant. He then partnered with Ace to help an entrepreneur in western India start a Chicken farm. They did three batches of 5000 chickens, hiring 3 full time and about 5 part time people. Unfortunately a problem with flies in the Monsoon season was not properly resolved and the local council ordered it closed down. We are continuing to work with the entrepreneur as he considers options to start a new business or build up his existing goat farm. Meanwhile the local council working with a water conservation NGO is renting out the vacant facility.
