Xuan Lao 03 Group's story

Thuoi, 40, is a Thai ethnic woman who is the mother of two children. Her adult daughter married and lives apart from her. Now she lives with her husband and 19-year-old son in a Thai traditional stilt house in a poor and remote area. Like other villagers, their lives rely only on growing rice and vegetables and raising chickens, ducks, pigs and cows to sustain their family.

Because of a difficult situation, she had no chance to go to school when she was young. She finds it difficult to access new techniques in cultivating and husbandry. Her main hardships are lack of capital and diseases in pigs and chickens.

Since she became a partner of Anh Chi Em program, she has been very interested in training sessions and counseling in which she can get more knowledge and access new farming techniques.

This is the sixth time she has taken out a loan from the Anh Chi Em program to buy a cow. She hopes that the cow will grow up healthily and fast, so she can sell baby cows in the next months.

She plans to use the profit to expand her farming and savings. She wishes that her family will always be filled with warmth and happiness and that her son will marry with a nice girl. In the picture, she stands at the first from the right.
