Duangdi's story

Duangdi has an organic chicken farm in his native northern Thailand. He is now in his late 40s. He 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 his entire life, he used to grow 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. He wants to purchase 700 new egg laying hens to raise on his farmland. Selling the eggs will enable him to continue his regular income. He will use the loan to buy organic hens and organic feed for them. He has been associated with Hilltribe Organics for a couple of years and has been raising organic hens, which has changed his life. It has given a stable income to him and his family and he is in a position to live a respectable life. He has demonstrated he is a responsible and good caretaker of hens.
