Pa Khoang 37 Group's story

Oi, 39, is a ethnic Thai woman who is married and has three children. Her first-born and second-born are studying in secondary school and the third-born child is studying in primary school. Her family lives in a Thai traditional stilt house in a remote village of the province of Dien Bien, where agriculture is the main income-generating activity of the locals.

In order to have enough money to take care of her three children going to school, Oi has to work very hard at farming and breeding with several small-scale activities such as growing rice and raising chickens, ducks, and fish. Wishing to expand the fish-raising model, Oi decided to take her second loan from the Anh Chi Em program to buy fingerlings because she can see fish as a kind of animal that gets less disease. She hopes that these fish will grow up fast and healthy so that the profits will come and she can use this income to support her children's education as well as reinvest in the breeding model. In the picture, she stands first from the right.
