freeing poultry market. Sir Fazle ABED observed that a 1970s Bangladeshi villager couldnt earn a living with the number of eggs the scrawny village chicken used to lay. So BRAC bred a super chicken that lays many times more eggs. But because it does more work the superchicken needs vet attention. Count up the 5 job descriptions that redesign the value chain of the whole poultry market in bangladesh:
villagers laying eggs with superchicks
now that villages have surplus eggs retaining them to cities

It cooperatively frees the market not by taking profit from the village workers every quarter but my maximising income generation across all 5 microfranchise jobs described above. That's employment for over 100000 previously-poorest people that the "chicken microfinance plus bank "mediates and economically sustains.
