A loan of $3,600 helped to buy feed for chicken.


Acha's story

Acha has an organic chicken farm in his native northern Thailand. He is now in his late 40's. He is a member of the Akha tribe in Chiang Rai, Thailand, one of several different ethnic groups who make their homes across the mountain ranges of southern China, Laos, Burma, Vietnam, and Thailand. For his entire life, he has grown beans on family land in the mountains near his home. But because prices of his farm goods go up and down, his income is very unpredictable, and is rarely enough to support his family. He has 700 egg laying hens to raise on farmland. Selling the eggs he gets every day can potentially triple the income he makes currently. And, because he could only sell beans once or twice a year, his egg farm will give him and his family a monthly source of cash for their lives.


This loan is special because:

It supports vulnerable hill tribe communities in the northern region of Thailand.
