Pay Kone-2 Village Group's story

Htein, 58, is a hardworking farmer who lives in a rural village in a dry zone area called Pay Kone-2 Village, which is located in Pakokku Township. He lives with his seven family members. He has been focusing on agriculture for five years.

Pictured here are the group leaders, Htein, Nyunt, Win, Win N and Than, who are helping to lead this loan program in the area. In this village, everyone is very enthusiastic about improving their living standards by finding ways to resolve their daily business problems. Most households in the village focus mainly on farming and on opening small grocery shops for their livelihoods.

This loan will be used to hire laborers and purchase fertilizers so that Htein can easily plant and harvest his crops in time. Having a happy family life is Htein's biggest dream and also his reason for working very hard to build savings. By receiving a loan from Proximity Designs, Htein believes that he will boost his income and improve his agricultural business beyond what he has achieved in past years.
