Thanh Luong 39 Group's story

Thinh is 44 years old and has been a farmer since she was very little. Now she lives with her grandchild in a small traditional house in Vietnam's northwest mountains. Her children are all adults and working away from home.

Like other villagers, agricultural production is her family's main income. Before, their life was really difficult because of the instability of income from agriculture as a result of their old traditional techniques (for example, rice crop failure; lack of investment capital in livestock). Since she knew about the Anh Chi Em program, Thinh has been interested in its loan and agricultural training and counseling, which have actually affected her farming and animal husbandry favorably. This time, she has taken out a loan from the Anh Chi Em program to buy piglets and food for them to raise and sell in the market.

Thinh hopes this investment will go well and help her reap good profits, which she plans to use to pay her grandchild’s tuition and reinvest in animal husbandry. She stands at the right in the photo.
