Thanh An 82 Group's story

Luyen, 36, is a Thai ethnic woman who is married and lives with her husband and two children who are attending school.

Luyen has been a farmer since she was very little and has tried so hard to provide for her family. Her family is recognized by the government as a near poor household. The family relies mostly on agricultural production to earn a living such as growing rice, vegetable for chicken, and raising pigs and chickens.

Before her life was really difficult because of the instability of income from agricultural as a result of their old traditional technique. Since she found out about Anh Chi Em program, she has been interested in its loan and agricultural training and counseling, which have actually affected favorably her farming and husbandry.

This is the sixth time she has taken out a loan from the program, to buy a cow to expand her farming. She dreams that her family will move out of poverty soon and always be full of warmth and happiness. In the picture, she wears a yellow shirt.
