Na Tau 44 Group's story

Doi, 39 years old, is a Thai ethnic woman who is the mother of two sons. She needs to borrow a loan to invest in fish farming.

Doi and her husband live with their parents-in-law and their sons in a traditional Thai stilt house in a remote village of Vietnam, where the mountainous areas are poor and agriculture is the main source of income. Her first son is in college and the other is in high school, so she needs extra income to pay school fees for her children. In addition to the income from her husband's salary, she works hard to create more income for her family, such as growing rice, raising pigs and raising chickens, so her family is also less difficult.

But because of the large family that makes high living expenses, the child's tuition fee is still the amount that Doi has to worry about. Through Anh Chi Em Program, she has access to capital to invest in fish farming. She has gone through eight loan cycles and this is her ninth loan round. She has been investing in fish farming for four years. The interest from selling fish will pay the school fees for her children, so the pressure from her child's tuition will be greatly reduced. Doi hopes this investment will be as successful as the previous one and that her family will have a better life in the future.
