A loan helped to buy baby fish.

He Muong 57 Group's story

A woman, Xien, smiles brightly and stands at the first from the right. She is a 39-year-old woman living with her 19-year-old son in small stilt house in a remote area. Since she has divorced, she has made great efforts in agricultural activities to earn money for them to live on such as growing rice, corn, and cassava, and raising chicken and fish. Sometimes, she has to work as a builder to get more money. The main hardship of her family is lack of capital. Recently, she has taken out a loan from Anh Chi Em program to buy baby fish. She hopes those baby fish will grow up quickly and healthily so she can use the profit from this investment to expand her fish raising and savings to repair her house. She dreams that her family will move out of poverty and her son will get married with a nice girl.
