Pa Khoang 38 Group's story

The woman standing first from the far right in the picture is Hoa, a 43-year-old ethnic Khmu woman. She has three adult children, Her two daughters are married and live away from home. Now she is living with her husband, her son, her daughter-in-law and her two grandchildren in a small traditional house [stilt house] in the northwest of Vietnam.

In order to have enough money to cover life expenses, everyday, Hoa and her husband work very hard at some small scale agricultural production activities, such as growing rice, cassava, raising chickens, buffaloes and fish. Wishing to expand the breeding model, Hoa decided to take a loan from the Anh Chi Em program and the loan will be used to buy fingerlings [young fish]. Hoa shared that fish are animals that are easier to raise and require less capital than others.

Hoa hopes that those fingerlings will grow up fast, be heathy and bring her a good profit, which she plans to use to reinvest on breeding.
