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

A loan helped to buy organic hens and organic feed.

Lisor's story

Lisor is 42 years old and has started an organic chicken farm in his native Northern Thailand. He is a member of the Thai tribe in Chiang Rai, Thailand, which is one of the several different ethnic groups who make their homes across the mountain ranges of Southern China, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam, and Thailand.

For his entire life, Lisor has grown vegetables on family land in the mountains near his home. However, because prices of his goods fluctuate, Lisor's income is very unpredictable and is rarely enough to support his family.

Therefore, Lisor decided to work with Hilltribe Organics to start raising organic eggs. This would be his second loan with Kiva. He is a responsible farmer and caretaker of hens.

Lisor wants to purchase 700 egg-laying hens to raise on his farmland. Selling the eggs will provide a continuous monthly income for his family and will allow them to clear the family's debt.
