Quail Eggs and Trust Issues

Over the past three months, I have been working with a local entrepreneur who is growing a quail egg and meat production business in a poor village in the southern region of Moldova. He came to us at Incubatorul de Afaceri Leova in order to receive financial assistance through a small financial grant program managed by Winrock International.

Listen to the detailed account below of how our story went and discover some serious underlying problems surrounding my first year of Peace Corps service and my interpretation of how it affects Moldovans’ ability to improve the national economy:
