Nusara'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 for them.


Nusara's story

She is 32 years old and has started an organic chicken farm in her native northern Thailand. She is a member of the Akha tribe in Chiang Rai, Thailand, which is one of several ethnic groups who make their homes across the mountain ranges of Southern China, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam, and Thailand.

For her entire life, she has grown vegetables on family land in the mountains near her home. However, because prices of her goods fluctuate, her income is very unpredictable and is rarely enough to support her family. Therefore, she decided to work with Hilltribe Organics to start raising organic eggs. This would be her second loan with Kiva. She has demonstrated to be a responsible farmer and caretaker of hens.

With this loan, she wants to purchase 700 egg-laying hens to raise on her farmland. Selling the eggs will provide a continuous monthly income for her family and will allow them to clear her family's debt.
