Na Tau 35 Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped buy fingerling (young fish).

Na Tau 35 Group's story

Thanh, 31, is Thai ethnic woman who has two daughters and a son. She lives with her husband and three children in a house on stilts in a poor village, where agriculture is the main income-generating activity.

Growing up in difficult circumstances made her unable to attend school, so she wishes her children could attend school fully.

In order to have enough money to pay for her children go to school as well as cover for life expenses, Thanh and her husband work very hard at many agricultural activities such as growing rice and raising chicken, duck, pig and fish.

In addition, her husband also is a construction worker to earn more income for the family.

Wishing to expand the breeding model, Thanh decided to take her eighth loan from Anh Chi Em program. The loan will be used to buy fingerlings (young fish) for raising. She shared that fish are the kind of animal easy to raise and less prone to disease than others.

She hopes that her experience, together with technical guidance from Anh Chi Em program, her investment will be successful and bring her a good income.

In the picture, she stands at the first from the right.
