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

A loan helped to buy new organic hens and hen feed.

Wiyada's story

Wiyada has an organic chicken farm in her native northern Thailand. She is now 30 years old. She is a member of the Akha tribe in Chiang Rai, Thailand, one of several different ethnic groups who make their homes across the mountain ranges of southern China, Laos, Burma, Vietnam, and Thailand.

For the last two years, Wiyada has been associated with Hill Tribe Organics Ltd. In the past, she demonstrated outstanding performance in taking care of her hens. After the termination of her hens that were over laying age, she needs to replace them with 700 new egg-laying hens to raise on her farmland. Her egg farm will continue to help her and her family, and provide a continuous monthly income for their lives. This stream of income has enabled her to send her children to study, clear the family's debt, and live a respectable life.
