Gyo War Wa (E) Village Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for high-quality seeds and cover labor charges to help them during busy times on the farm.

Gyo War Wa (E) Village Group's story

Pictured above are A Mi, Maw, Moe, Khin and Ni. They are from Gyo War Wa (E) village group. There are around 140 households in the village. Farming is also the major business of this village. Apart from farming, people generate their income by opening small grocery stores and working as day laborers in nearby village farms.

First from the right is Khin, the featured borrower, who is a mother of two children. She grows Bay Gyar (a famous rice type in Myanmar) on the small two-acre farm that she owns. Khin dreams of earning better income and creating a happy family life and she wants to support her children until they graduate

Through this new loan from Kiva, Khin and the other group members will use the fund to pay for labor fees so that they harvest on time, which will let them boost their income. Khin is also planning to purchase quality seeds.
