A poultry project can be either a group project or just leaded by a single member as a private project.
In the case of a group project the money for the financing, so for the stable and the first chickens comes out of the group found. The profit goes back into the same. At first the chickens will be shared among the members (if there exists the interest) before they sell them.
In the case of a private project the money also comes from the group but the profit goes to the project leader. Than after some time on a before fixed date the member has to pay the borrowed money back to the group. Furthermore there is often the condition that the Project keeper has to give a fixed number of chicks to another interested member so that also this one can start a poultry project.

Poultry projects are very popular and to find in nearly every dioceses. But there are also some challenges. Especially diseases, which spread very fast between the chickens. It is also hard to get a good price for the chicken on the market.
