Duangmanee's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To buy feed for chicken.
Duangmanee has an organic chicken farm in her native northern Thailand. She is now in their early 40's, raising her three children at home. She is a member of the Karen 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 her entire life, she has grown rice and vegetables on family land in the mountains near her home. But because prices of her farm goods go up and down, her income is very unpredictable, and is rarely enough to support her family. She has 700 egg laying hens to raise on farmland. Selling the eggs she gets every day can potentially more than triple the income she makes currently. Her egg farm will give her and her family a monthly source of cash in their lives, which she plans to use to send her children to study.
