Thanh An 11 Group's story

Do you think what a person who is deaf and mute can do? Hich is a woman who is deaf and mute from birth. She is 51 years old, she has not married yet and currently she is taking care of a nephew.

Even though she has lots of difficulties in life, she can still have a normal life like other villagers because she is an excellent weaver and a hard-working farmer as well.

Her income mainly comes from agriculture products, for example rice, pigs, chickens, duck, musk duck, etc. Recently, to have enough money to cover her business expenses, she took a loan from Anh Chi Em to buy food for pigs and musk duck.

She wishes all of the people are deaf and mute can have a stable life without any difficulties.

She stands first from the right.
