Lor-Ae's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy chicken and feed.

Lor-Ae's story

Lor-Ae has an organic chicken farm in his native northern Thailand. He is now in his mid 50's.

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, Lor-Ae has grown vegetables on family land in the mountains near his home, but because the prices of his farm goods go up and down, his income is very unpredictable, and rarely enough to support his family.

He will buy 700 egg-laying hens to raise on his farmland.

Selling the eggs can potentially triple the income he currently makes.

Lor-Ae's egg farm will give him and his family a monthly source of cash for their lives, which he plans to use to clear the family's debt.
