Lor-Ae's story

He is 42 years old and has started an organic chicken farm in his native northern Thailand. He is a member of the Akha tribe in Chiang Rai, Thailand, which is one of the several different ethnic groups that make their homes across the mountain ranges of Southern China, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam, and Thailand.

For his entire life, he has grown vegetables on family land in the mountains near his home. However, because prices of his goods fluctuate, his income is very unpredictable and is rarely enough to support his family. Therefore, he decided to work with Hilltribe Organics to start raising organic eggs. This would be his third loan with Kiva. He is a responsible caretaker of hens.

He wants to purchase 700 egg-laying hens to raise on his farmland. Selling the eggs will provide a continuous monthly income for him family and will allow them to clear his family's debt.
