Lorsong's story

Lorsong has an organic chicken farm in his native northern Thailand.

He is a member of the Akha tribe in Chiang Rai, Thailand, one of several ethnic groups who make their homes across the mountain ranges of southern China, Laos, Burma, Vietnam and Thailand.

For his entire life, Lorsong has grown vegetables on family land in the mountains near his 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.

Lorsong will buy 700 egg laying hens to raise on farmland. Selling the eggs can potentially triple the income he currently makes. His egg farm will give him and his family a monthly source of cash for their lives, which he plans to use to spend on daily life needs.
