Hleit Chaung Pauk Gyi (D) Village Group's story

Hleit Chaung Pauk Gyi (D) Village Group has six loan customers that comprise this Kiva loan program. The village is located in Pakokku Township, which is well known as one of the historic areas in Myanmar. People around this area are very active and enthusiastic in celebrating religious ceremonies. They make a living through farming, because the area is favorable for growing chilies, tobacco, paddy rice and a variety of beans.

In the picture above are Aye, San, Aye T, San H, Thida and War. Aye, second from the left, is 58 years old and the mother of four children. Her husband has passed away. For a living, she works together with her children on their farmland. Aye is very devoted to her job, as this work has been passed down from her parents.

Aye plans to focus on growing chilies this season. Therefore, she will use her portion of the Kiva loan to purchase certified enriched chili seeds and quality fertilizer to nourish the soil.
