Thanh An 45 Group's story

Pang, 50, is a Thai ethnic woman who lives with her mother-in-law, husband, son, and daughter-in-law in a traditional Thai stilt house.

They live in a small village where people rely mainly on agriculture for a living. Like other villagers, Pang and her husband work very hard: they cultivate rice as well as raising buffaloes, ducks, pigs, and chickens.

This is the sixth time she has taken out a loan from the Anh Chi Em Program and she used the loan to buy food for the chickens and ducks.

Despite plenty of difficulties ahead, Pang believes that with continuing support from the program, her investment will go smoothly and bring good income for her family.

She will use the profits to repair her house. In the picture, she wears a flowered shirt and stands the first from the right in the second row.
