A loan helped to repair the pigsty and start up raising pigs.

Thanh Yen 08 Group's story

Hong was born in 1987 and is a Thai ethnic woman. Most of her income comes from farming rice and raising chickens and buffalo. She lives with a parent-in-law, husband and 2 children in a Thai traditional stilt house in a poor village.

This time Dien has taken out a loan from the Anh Chi Em program to repair the pigsty and start up raising pigs. She hopes this time her investment will be successful in the near future. With her profits, she will save to repair her old house.

Hong dreams that her family will be always be filled with warmth and happiness and her children could have a full education. In the photo, she stands first on the line and wears an orange t-shirt.
