A loan helped to buy a buffalo.

Noong Luong 145 Group's story

Hong was born in 1990. She is a woman of Thai ethnicity. Hong lives with her husband and 2 daughters in a small house made of mud and straw in a poor village. Like the other people in her village, Hong works hard on a farm planting rice. At home, she raises chickens and fish for a living.

This is the fifth time Hong has taken out a loan from the Anh Chi Em program. She repaid her previous loans on time.
This time, she will use the loan to buy a buffalo. She believes that a buffalo can help her on the field, therefore her rice productivity will increase and bring a larger profit than the previous seasons.

Hong dreams that her family will have long lives and will not have to worry about living expenses anymore.
