Nusara's story

Nusara is 30 years old, and she started an organic chicken farm in her native northern Thailand. She is a member of the Akha tribe in Chiang Rai, Thailand, which is one of the several different ethnic groups who make their homes across the mountain ranges of Southern China, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam, and Thailand.

For Nusara's entire life, she has cultivated rice on family land in the mountains near her home. However, because the price of goods fluctuate, her income is very unpredictable, and it is rarely enough to support her family. Therefore, she decided to work with Hill Tribe Organics to start raising organic eggs. This would be her first loan with Kiva.

She wants to purchase 700 egg-laying organic hens and organic feed for them to raise on her farmland. Selling the eggs will provide a continuous monthly income for her family. This will allow her to send her children to school and will enable her to live a better and respectable life.
