One Hen: How One Small Loan Made a Big Difference
by Katie Milway, illustrated by Eugene Fernandes

Based on a true story of how the gift of one hen grew into a thriving West African farm employing many. Little Kojo was forced to quit school to help his mother, but one day he was able to get a small loan (a 'microloan') to buy a hen. In time, he built up his flock, and eventually became the largest poultry farmer is the area. A great book for teaching how small acts of generosity can make large differences.
