high demand in african market
Our chicken program has been designed to work in Africa. There prices for poultry are high and not easily satisfied. As the price to buy remains higher than the United States, but the costs to produce remain the same (if not cheaper) the overall gross margins are higher.
demand for the entire chickens
In the United States, only parts of the chicken are used. The parts traditionally thrown away in the process - like beaks and feet are more valuable in Africa. Therefore the whole chicken can be used, fetching an overall higher price.
low capital outlay, high consistent returns
The coop - even with essential IoT components costs just over a hundred dollars. Every five weeks that will produce over fifty chickens, grown naturally from the land and with zero GM feed. As well as healthier, and free range, the coop continues to produce chickens all year round.
environmentally sustainable & healthy
Coops benefit the land with increased soil irrigation, natural fertilizer and resources. Optional solar roofs can generate enough electricity to charge mobile phones and computers. Chickens are semi-free range, only locked up at night to protect against predators.
How It Works
External Investors gift funds for development, or Destinato invests directly. Farmers can also purchase the kits directly from us at cost.
build the coop
We assist the farmers build the coops directly, or send details instructions with a small loan to cover the cost of buying materials (anywhere in Southern Africa)
Farmers pay us $100 from each harvest. We recycle the money back into the program enabling more families to produce chickens and live sustainably
