Supat'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.
Supat, now in his mid-30's, has an organic chicken farm in his native northern Thailand. He is responsible for his parents and for his niece, whose father has left for work in another province. .He 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 his entire life, he has grown garlic in the mountains near her 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 more than triple the income he makes currently. His egg farm will give him and his family a monthly source of cash for their lives, which he plans to use to pay off family debts and to pay for decent food, which his family has been lacking
