Tennessee Peace Corps volunteer returns from Guatemala

The Daily Post-Athenian features the story of Faedra Fisher, a "grassroots veterinarian" who spent two years as a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala.

"Faedra said one of the villages had no egg production, so for her project she worked with seven women on a plan to raise chickens so they would have eggs for their families to eat and eggs to sell. She needed $700, so she asked her parents for help with the fundraising. Donations came in from Keith Memorial United Methodist Church and Mayfield Dairy Farms."
