A loan helped to buy fish and pigs.

Muong Phang 15 Group's story

Bien, 28, is an ethnic Thai woman living in a poor and remote area with her husband and two children. Their income is mostly from agricultural products such as rice, fish and pigs. Her oldest daughter is studying in grade 3 and her youngest daughter is in kindergarten. She works hard to cover tuition fees and ensure for her kids the best opportunity to learn fully—and to have better conditions than she has.

Recently, she has taken out a loan from the Anh Chi Em program to buy fish and pigs, with the hopes that her family can expand their husbandry to increase their income. This couple dreams that their children will have better lives than they do.
