A loan helped to buy a buffalo.

Noong Luong 12 Group's story

Huong is a young Thai ethnic woman who married and now lives with her husband and 2 school-age children. They live in a small house which is made of mud and straw in a poor village. Her income from agriculture products on a small scale is not sufficient.

To expand her farming, she took a loan from the Anh Chi Em program to buy a buffalo to raise.

With the profit from this loan, she hopes she can cover her family's expenses including her children's school tuition fees.
