A loan helped to buy fertilizer for her rice field.

Thanh Luong 28 Group's story

Phong is 38 years old who is a Thai ethnic woman. She is married and has a 9-month-old daughter. Her family lives in a Thai traditional stilt house in the northwest mountain of Vietnam, where agriculture is the main income activity.

Although she is woman, she is main income generator for the family. She always works hard to best raise her daughter. However, even though she is both farming and raising chickens, she still can not afford to invest in fertilizer to improve her family's economy due to drought and disease. So she decided to get a 4th loan from Anh Chi Em program to buy fertilizer for her rice field. Phong hopes that her rice field will grow well so she can harvest more rice. With the profits, she will take better care for her family and reinvest in chicken and duck raising.
