1 Quarter (9) Group's story

Shown in this picture are San, Htay, Htwe and Mya from 1 Quarter (9) Group in Pakokku Township, Myanmar. This loan will enable the members to expand their respective businesses and boost their incomes.

The featured borrower is Mya, the one wearing a green top. She is 48 years old and married with one daughter and one son. Both children are currently attending school.

In 2008, Mya decided to use her cooking skills to earn income for her family, as she is recognized in her community as a good cook. Since then, together with her spouse, she has been selling various kinds of Myanmar cuisine.

Mya will use her portion of the loan to buy new plates for her restaurant. Mya’s biggest dream in life is to have her beloved children successfully graduate from school.
