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

A loan helped to purchase organic hens and organic feed for them.

Khamla's story

Khamla has just started an organic chicken farm in her native northern Thailand. She is a member of the Karen tribe in Chiang Rai, Thailand, one of several different ethnic groups which make their homes across the mountain ranges of southern China, Laos, Burma, Vietnam, and Thailand.

For her entire life, she has grown vegetables on family land in the mountains near her home. However, because prices of her farm goods go up and down, her income is very unpredictable, and is rarely enough to support her family.

With this money, she will buy 700 egg laying organic hens to raise on farmland and also organic feed for them. Selling the eggs, she gets regular income and will potentially triple the income she makes currently. This will enable her to live a respectable life. Her egg farm will give her and her family a monthly source of cash for their lives, which she plans to use to clear the family's debt and provide education to her children.
