Ah Hpaung Gyi Village Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase more ducks and high-quality feed.

Ah Hpaung Gyi Village Group's story

Pictured above are the CBO members from Ah Hpaung Gyi Village Group, named Zaw, Hla, Win, Htay, and Htun. These group leaders and their fellow residents of Ah Hpaung Gyi Village, used Kiva’s previous loan to purchase high-quality feed such as duck food and packets of shrimp. Better feed increased the duck egg production, thereby boosting income. Families used part of this extra income to invest in their children’s education.

As Ah Hpaung Gyi Village is repaying its prior loan, we are now preparing to extend a new loan to these 23 members to help them continue to expand their duck businesses. All the members are very excited for the continued generous support from Kiva’s lending community.
