A loan helped to buy baby chickens and chicken feed.

Noong Het 13 Group's story

Mrs. Nuoi, 58, is a Thai ethnic woman who became a farmer when she was a child. Now she lives with her husband, her son and a grandson in a small stilt house in the northwest of Viet Nam. In the picture, she stands first from the right.

Every day, she works laboriously on her farm growing rice, corn, and vegetables and in husbandries, raising chickens and buffaloes to ensure her family’s well-being.

Recently Mrs. Nuoi has taken a loan from the Anh Chi Em program (ACE) to buy baby chickens and the food for them. She hopes with the support from ACE, not only in financial but also non-financial ways, this business will go well and bring in a good profit for her. Mrs. Nuoi will use this profit to cover her grandson's education and reinvest in poultry.
