Thanh Yen 45 Group's story

Loan is 56 years old and has been a farmer since she was very little. Loan's family lives in a remote village in Vietnam's northwest mountains.

Loan's family gets their main income from agricultural production, with some small-scale activities such as growing rice and corn and raising fish, chickens and pigs. Loan shared that the income of agriculture was unstable, along with that pig and chicken farming often met with disease and died, causing her family's economy to face many difficulties. Recently, she realized that fish farming didn't cost a lot of effort and was less risky. Besides, she could take advantage of grass around the house as food for fish. Therefore, she decided to borrow a loan from the Anh Chi Em program to expand her fish farming model by buying more fingerlings [young fish] for raising.

This is the second time Loan borrowed at the Anh Chi Em program. Loan shares that at Anh Chi Em, she could get capital as well as receive advice and training for free on farming and breeding techniques, so she has peace of mind and believes that this investment will be as successful as the previous one.

She intends to use the profit from investing to expand her breeding model and pay for the family expenses.
